The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has recently issued a new update on ₹2000 notes, stirring discussions and uncertainties among the public. As of now, approximately 97.26% of these notes have re-entered the banking system, signaling a significant shift. However, a substantial value of ₹9,760 crores in ₹2000 notes still circulates in the market.

The Announcement and the Market Dynamics

On May 19, the RBI declared its intention to withdraw the ₹2000 banknotes from circulation. At that time, the total value of the circulating ₹2000 notes in the market was a staggering ₹3.56 lakh crores. Despite more than six months passing since the announcement, the full return of these notes is yet to materialize.

Remaining Notes and Legal Tender Status

As of November 30, 2023, ₹9,760 crores worth of ₹2000 notes are still in circulation. The RBI assures the public that these notes will remain legal tender. Individuals can deposit or exchange these notes at various RBI offices across the country.

Options for Exchange and Deposits
