Last date to deposit or exchange Old Rs 500 and 1000 Notes |How to Deposit and Exchange Old rs 500 and Rs 100 Notes | Old Rs 500 and 1000 Deposit and Exchange Form
Well, the increased currency is presently a burning issue right now. Few days ago there was the news of introduction of 2000 rupee note in India. But finally that idea was banned in India. And that has resulted in a major question whether the 500 and 1000 rupee notes will exist in India. And the answer to this question is, these 500 and 1000 rupee notes will be discontinued. Now, we know you are looking for answers why the notes are going to be banned? The reasons are as follows:
Increased restriction is a primary reason. For instance, you will have to show your PAN card number while depositing more than Rs 50000 in cash in any bank. And because of this, the black money stays out of reach of banks. Previously, the co-operative banks were the safe haven for tax evasion. Because there was no TDS deduction. But now they deduct TDS from every individual. You will also have to show your PAN if your cumulative deposit is more then rs 50,000.
The second reason is, if the high demolition notes are withdrawn it will also reduce the generation of black money in future. Because, it will become difficult for anti socials to deal in cash, especially for the large deals that are done in crores. Smuggling of currency notes from outside India will also become difficult. This is really important for our national security because the terrorist organizations make use of the black money for financing. And these deals with black money are done on high demolition notes for financing.
The European Central Bank has already banned the printing of 500 Euro notes. And those notes have been already banned in the name of Bin Laden notes because of its association with terrorist funding. The currency notes leave no trail and offer anonymity and this is why the step has been implemented right now. From today midnight, the 500 and 1000 rupee notes will be banned.
