There seems to be some relief in sight for citizens as new currency notes of Rs 500 have been finally issued in Bhopal. Although the Rs 2,000 notes had come into circulation, the new Rs 500 note was yet to be passed on.
The common man has been affected by the demonetization. From problems faced in getting a medical check-up to daily trading woes in rural areas. From standing in long queues at ATM to spending the day without having adequate money, people faced a lot of difficulties.
The government scrapped the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes with effect from Tuesday midnight and introduced new notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2,000. Sources said that the RBI has already printed the Rs 2,000 and Rs 500 notes at its two printing units in Mysore in Karnataka and Salboni in West Bengal.
