Exchange Limit for 2000 Notes: Big Update! RBI Fixed Exchange Limit for 2000 Notes, Know the Limit Here

2000 Rupee Note: In a significant announcement, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has declared that the 2000 Rupees Note will be withdrawn from circulation. Citizens are required to deposit these notes in banks by September 30, 2023.

Finance Secretary TV Somanathan highlighted that the usage of Rs 2000 notes has decreased due to the rise in digital transactions. Although it was introduced in 2016 when it was widely used, its popularity has diminished over time. Considering the growing prevalence of electronic transactions, the need for carrying high denomination notes has diminished, he stated.

The introduction of the 2000 Rupees Note followed the demonetization move in 2016. The reasons behind its withdrawal include counterfeit currency, damaged notes, and reduced usage.

As per the RBI, account holders can exchange their Rs 2000 notes through the Business Correspondent Center with a daily limit of Rs 4000. However, having a bank account is necessary for this facility. On the other hand, individuals can exchange the 2000 rupee note at any bank branch without the requirement of a bank account.

The Reserve Bank has further mentioned that any citizen can exchange Rs 2000 notes at any bank up to a maximum limit of Rs 20,000 per transaction. It is not mandatory to have a bank account for this exchange. The note exchange process will be free of charge, and individuals will not be required to pay any fees.
