RBI (which is like the boss of all banks) said that they will stop using Rs 2,000 notes because they want clean money. But he also said that people can still exchange these notes in banks. Therefore, from May 23, people can go to their banks and exchange their Rs 2,000 notes for other currencies. They have time till September 30, 2023 to do so.
The bank boss in India said that if people want to exchange their Rs 2000 notes or want to keep them in the bank, then they do not need to worry or be afraid. He also said that he thinks most of these notes will be returned to the banks before a certain time.
