A news story has been aired since yesterday afternoon that the 2000 note will have no worth after September 30. The Reserve Bank of India on Friday announced the withdrawal of the rupee 2000 denomination bank note from circulation. However, the rupees 2000 note will continue to be legal until the central bank allows people to deposit rupees 2000 bank notes into their accounts or exchange them into bank notes of other denominations at any bank branch. An exchange facility for rupees 20000 at a time will be available from May 23rd, according to the RBI statement.
This decision of the RBI is more like a second surgical strike on black money. During demonetization, the government started printing Rs 2000 to give immediate relief to the people. Withdrawal of Rs 2000 would be more like curbing corruption and black money.
Jairam Ramesh, on his Twitter account, stated that typical of our self-styled Vishwaguru first act second thing, the Rs 2000 note introduced with such fanfare after the singular disasters to Lucky Farman of November 8, 2016 are now being withdrawn, and Congress leader Pawan Khera also criticises the decision, stating that the cost of November 8, 2016 has come back to haunt the nation once again.
