We will remind, the government of India carried out large-scale monetary reform, which aims to fight corruption by reducing the circulation of cash. Citizens can exchange large bills for smaller banks, but the exchange amount shall not exceed four thousand rupees in one hand.
It is understood that all transaction amounts must now be conducted in the form of cash that the government could control them. Exchange offices also introduced quotas on the withdrawal and exchange of currency of 10 thousand rupees per day and 20 thousand in a week.
