All the banks and ATMs were shut of the 9th November which created a lot of panic among the public. From today the banks are open and all the banks are witnessing long queues of people who want to deposit their Rs.500 and Rs.1000 notes or exchange their notes with Rs.100 notes. Many banks are facing a lot of problem in managing the demand for exchange as there is a shortfall of Rs.100 notes.
Addressing the public of the country the Managing Drector of SBI, Rajneesh Kumar, said that the public need not panic. the government and the banks are trying their best to meet the demand. He added that there will be enough time given to deposit all the Rs.500 and Rs.1000 notes that is there with people. He also informed that now one has to adjust wth the Rs.100 notes as it will take some more time to release the Rs.2000 and new Rs.500 notes.
But then the annual report for the year 2016 says that 86% of the total Rs.16.42 lakh core value of bank notes that is in circulation is that of Rs.500 and Rs.1000 notes, and replacing them would be surely difficult.

Meanwhile, on accounting the problem faced the common men in the country, the nation’s one among the leading bankers ‘State Bank of India’ has preferred to offers 100 rupees note for exchanging the banned higher valued currency of Rs.500 and Rs.1000 recently which is highly welcomed the all citizens of India.
