The government had on Thursday announced that the demonetised 500 and 1,000 rupee notes can no longer be exchanged at bank counters and any holdings will necessarily have to be deposited in bank accounts.

"The Reserve Bank of India advises members of public that exchange of banknotes in Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denominations, whose legal tender status has been withdrawn, will continue to be available at the counters of the Reserve Bank up to the current limits per person as hitherto," the central bank said in a statement.

The limit to exchange old notes was recently set at Rs 2,000 per person.

And the RBI said the facility of exchanging demonetised currency notes "is no longer available at other banks' counters."
