Reserve Bank Governor Shaktikanta Das on Friday said that Rs.2,000 denomination notes are coming back and only ₹10,000 crore worth of such notes are left with people.

He seemed to be confident that these notes will also be returned or deposited back.

“₹2,000 notes are coming back and only ₹10,000 crore is left in the system. The expectation is that the amount will also come back,” he said on the sidelines of the event here.Earlier this month, Das had said 87 per cent of the ₹2,000 denomination notes being withdrawn have returned as deposits into banks while the rest has been exchanged across counters.

On May 19, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had declared its plan to phase out the ₹2,000 note, which had been introduced in 2016 as part of a rapid remonetisation effort.

This followed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement to withdraw more than 88 per cent of the currency in circulation by invalidating the ₹500 and ₹1,000 notes.

Public and entities holding such notes were initially asked to either exchange or deposit them in bank accounts by September 30. The last date was later extended to October 7.

On October 7, both deposit and exchange services at bank branches were discontinued. Starting October 8, individuals were provided with the choice of either exchanging the currency or having the equivalent sum credited to their bank accounts at 19 Reserve Bank of India locations.

Individuals or entities can exchange ₹2,000 banknotes at the 19 RBI offices up to a limit of ₹20,000 at a time. However, there is no limit on the total amount for getting ₹2,000 notes credited into bank accounts.
