Demonetisation: Yet to reconcile scrapped notes, says RBI

The Reserve Bank of India has now directed that those who want to deposit old Rs.500 and Rs.1000 notes at its offices should carry a stamped document from the airport to prove that they were overseas. However, if the RBI decides to shift its printing more towards smaller denomination notes, this number could be close to 80 per cent, the report assessed.

The same limit will apply to resident Indians who were overseas between November 8 and December 30, but they will have to turn in the old notes by March 31 at designated RBI offices.

"Either way, we maintain, contrary to market perception, that things will be closer to normal by February-end as opposed to predictions of the crisis lasting longer".

"We would like to clarify that the periodical SBN (specified bank notes) figures released by us were based on aggregation of accounting entries done at the large number of currency chests all over the country", RBI said in a press release on Thursday. "If this is the case, the possibility of a GDP bounce-back faster than anticipated may not be ruled out".

Referring to various "estimates", the RBI said, "any estimate may not indicate the actual numbers".

Indians who were overseas during November 9 to December 30 have been given a three-month grace period till March 31 to deposit the junked notes, while for the NRIs, it is six months till June 30.

Although the notes were demonetised on November 8, 2016 the Specified Bank Notes (Cessation of Liabilities Ordinance) Ordinance, 2016 provides an opportunity to those persons who were unable to deposit the SBNs within the time provided.
