Returned by Pak, jawan ‘traumatised, incoherent’ RBI may offer one more chance to deposit notes THE DEMONETISATION
AFTER RETURN No injury marks on Chavan, but he is psychologically stressed
Chandu Babulal Chavan was handed over to India on January 21.
The Reserve Bank of India may allow citizens another chance to deposit the scrapped `500 and `1,000 banknotes but the exchange would be for a limited sum, sources in the government and banking sector said on Wednesday.
The central bank has been flooded with queries and requests from people who failed to deposit all their money by the December 30 deadline, seeking relief, sources said.
“The amounts are as small as `2,000… the issue is being looked into and the advice would be to hold on to those notes as we are examining (opening) another window for these genuine people,” the source said.
Many people were discovering old currency notes tucked away somewhere. Interestingly, one of the queries was from a person who found a `1,000 bill in a book.
If allowed, deposits would only be for smaller sums to ensure that the window, which will be for a limited period, was not misused, sources said.
A government official said the amount expected from this window was minuscule.
The government had on November 8 recalled the two highvalue notes that accounted for 86% of the cash in circulation.
