People have two months to deposit with bank or post office. :emoji_no_mouth:


you have two months to deposit all your 500/1000 rupee notes in bank or post office.
banks and atms would be down tomm and day after.
after 2 days you can take out just rs. 2000 per account from atm for a few weeks.
the limit would be increased with time.


for the first 2 weeks, folks can get only Rs. 4000 deposited per day iirc. rbi website should have a circular related to this.

Rs 500 & Rs 1000 notes banned from tonight; they will cease to be legal tender from tonight;
Can only be deposited in banks accounts, head and sub-post offices;
You can exchange them in banks & post offices between Nov 9 and Dec 30, 2016;

Govt buses ticket booking counter, airlines will accept them for booking tickets till Nov 11 midnight;
Petrol & CNG outlets, crematoriums, international airports will also have leeway to accept Rs 500 & Rs 1000 notes till Nov 11;

this is from a message forward. seems accurate.

Modi said that starting tonight the Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes will only be worth the paper they are printed on. He added that ATMs will not work in some places on November 9 and November 10. He said that people have 50 days, from November 10 to December 30 to deposit notes of Rs 500 & Rs 1000 in any bank or post office.
PM Modi said that new notes of Rs 2000 and Rs 500 will be circulated soon. He further said that for the initial 72 hours, government hospitals and petrol pumps, CNG gas stations will accept the old Rs 500 and 1000 notes till November 11 midnight.
Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes demolished: Here’s what to do with old notes

I have 5 1000 rupee notes in my pocket. No idea what to do with them.


if Paytm was a listed company, this would be a great day to buy their stock.


ugh.. What the hell? Is one supposed to carry 100 note stacks from now on? The nearby kirana isn't going to accept cards and Paytm .

ATMs to be closed on Nov 9 & 10;
All banks closed on Nov 9 for public transactions.
Boy am I in a sticky situation! Went to the ATM only this afternoon and almost emptied my account. I literally have 8k in 1000 rupee notes and a 20 rupee note in my hand. What am I supposed to do for these two days?

So the 500rs and 1000rs money i have is useless and it will be valid only if i change it with the bank??


Amazing Member
^ Yup. IIRC they'll take those notes and deposit it in your bank account creating a paper trail

real ballsy move by Modi. Kudos

Also IIRC they capped the daily withdrawls from ATMs to 10l per day and no more than 20K per week.

So let say an emergency tomorrow or day after tomorrow and all that the person has is 500rs and 100ors note. Will it be invalid and there will be no operation?
