Date for withdrawal of pre-2005 notes extended...

Few weeks back I had informed you that RBI proposes to withdraw the old series of currency notes printed prior to 2005 (See blog 'Get ready to replace your pre-2005 currency notes'). How these specific bank notes are to be identified, was also explained therein. 

As per earlier announcement, this was to be done by Mar 31, 2014. However, RBI has now notified that the said date is extended to Jan 1, 2015. It has also reiterated that these bank notes will remain a legal tender and people can continue to use them for any transaction/ payment.

RBI has also advised banks to ensure that the exchange of the said notes does not cause any inconvenience to the public. 

In this connection, it has also issued the following do's and don'ts for the banks: 

DOs
1. Banks should sensitize the members of public that the pre-2005 notes would continue to be legal tender.
2. All denominations of banknotes issued prior to 2005 series have to be exchanged.
