Mumbai/New Delhi, 22 May: Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das, while issuing new guildlines, said that people can easily exchange ₹2,000 notes easily.

All the banks have been directed to maintain the data of ₹2,000 notes being deposited daily along with providing all the facilities to the people to change the notes, he noted.

Das, in a press conference held here on Monday, said four months’ time has been given to exchange ₹2,000 notes, so there is no need to be in a hurry. He said that ₹2,000 notes will continue to be legal tender even after September 30.

In an order issued by the RBI, it has been said that the facility to exchange ₹2,000 notes for the general public has been provided to all banks.
