New rupee notes of 2,000, 50, 20 to be available in ATMs soon
The government has announced that the new Rs. 2,000 notes will be available in ATMs soon along with Rs.50 and Rs.20 notes.
Ever since the ban on the use of old Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000, people have been busy depositing them and exchanging them.
The new Rs. 2,000 notes are longer and were not fitting in the ATM slots. The ATMs have now been modified so they can give the new notes.
The government has also extended the use of the old currency at government hospitals, private nursing homes and petrol stations until 24 November. Payments for power and water have also been extended until 24 November.
