Agartala: Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to allow people use the old currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 till 30 December to ease public inconveniences.

"People are facing enormous difficulties due to the severe cash crunch. The Centre and RBI too, perhaps, are realising the fact.

"Eyeing the issue, I would urge people should be allowed to use Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes till alternate arrangements are not put in place, i.e. by 30 December as the Centre has set the time limit," Sarkar wrote to Modi on Tuesday.

He also requested the Prime Minister to supply adequate cash to rural banks, so that people in these areas can withdraw and deposit old notes without difficulties.
