In yet another development into the withdrawal of Rs 2,000 currency notes, the State Bank of India (SBI) has issued a clarification regarding the exchange of Rs 2,000 currency notes. The SBI in a circular which was issued on Saturday said that people don’t need to fill out requisition forms if a person wishes to exchange their Rs 2,000 currency notes up to the limit of Rs 20,000 at a time. If anyone wishes to get an amount beyond Rs 20,000 of the said currency exchanged then they will have to fill the requisition form.
The circular further added that the tenderer won’t have to submit any proof of identification at the time of the exchange either.
