In a major step to check black money, the government on Tuesday discontinued Rs 500 and 1000 currency notes. The announcement in this regard was made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his address to the nation. “From Midnight Nov 8, 2016 today, Rs500 and Rs1000 notes are no longer legal tender,” said Modi.
Every citizen will be allowed to withdraw 10,000 Rupees from Bank or ATM per day and 30,000 per week which seems to be less. This ban on notes can be major stroke on Indian economy but we will, have to wait and watch how it turns out to be. Why India Banned 500 and 1000 Rupee Notes.
