RBI Publish The Revised FAQ Dated 4th January, 2016 on Withdrawal of Legal Tender Character of the old Bank Notes

FAQs on Withdrawal of Legal Tender Character of the old Bank Notes in the denominations of ₹ 500/- and ₹ 1000/- and The Specified Bank Notes (Cessation of Liabilities) Ordinance 2016 
(Updated as on January 04, 2017)

1. Why was the Scheme of Withdrawal of Legal Tender Character of the old Bank Notes in the denominations of ₹ 500/- and ₹ 1000/- introduced?
The incidence of fake Indian currency notes in higher denomination has increased. For ordinary persons, the fake notes look similar to genuine notes, even though no security feature has been copied. The fake notes are used for antinational and illegal activities. High denomination notes have been misused by terrorists and for hoarding black money. India remains a cash based economy hence the circulation of Fake Indian Currency Notes continues to be a menace. In order to contain the rising incidence of fake notes and black money, the scheme to withdraw legal tender character of the old Bank Notes in the denominations of ₹ 500/- and ₹ 1000/-was introduced.

2. What is this scheme?
The legal tender character of the bank notes in denominations of ₹ 500 and ₹ 1000 issued by the Reserve bank of India till November 8, 2016 (hereinafter referred to as Specified Bank Notes) stands withdrawn. In consequence thereof these Bank Notes cannot be used for transacting business and/or store of value for future usage. The Specified Bank Notes (SBNs) were allowed to be exchanged for value at RBI Offices till December 30, 2016 and till November 25, 2016 at bank branches/Post Offices and deposited at any of the bank branches of commercial banks/ Regional Rural Banks/ Co-operative banks (only Urban Co-operative Banks and State Co-operative Banks) or at any Head Post Office or Sub-Post Office during the period from November 10, 2016 to December 30, 2016.

मेरे प्यारे देशवासियो, नमस्कार। आप सभी को क्रिसमस की अनेक-अनेक शुभकामनायें। आज का दिन सेवा, त्याग और करुणा को अपने जीवन में महत्व देने का अवसर है। ईसा मसीह ने कहा “गरीबों को हमारा उपकार नहीं, हमारा स्वीकार चाहिये”। Saint Luke के Gospel में लिखा है “जीसस ने न केवल गरीबों की सेवा की है, बल्कि गरीबों के द्वारा की गयी सेवा की भी सराहना की है” और यही तो असली empowerment है। इससे जुड़ी एक कहानी भी बहुत प्रचलित है। उस कहानी में बताया गया है कि जीसस एक temple treasury के पास खड़े थे। कई अमीर लोग आए, ढेर सारे दान दिए। उसके बाद एक ग़रीब विधवा आई और उसने दो तांबे के सिक्के डाले। एक तरह से देखा जाए दो तांबे के सिक्के, कुछ मायने नहीं रखते। वहाँ खड़े भक्तों के मन में, कौतुहल होना बड़ा स्वाभाविक था, तब जीसस ने कहा, कि उस विधवा महिला ने सबसे ज्यादा दान किया है, क्योंकि औरों ने बहुत कुछ दिया, लेकिन इस विधवा ने तो अपना सब कुछ दे दिया है।
