How to Exchange, Deposit or Withdraw Money After Ban Of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 Notes

In what appears to be one of the biggest decisions of the Modi-led government, 500 and 1000 rupee notes have been banned from use. The Prime Minister addressed the nation in a televised press release yesterday and notified of the impending change.
The huge amount of black money, as well as, money earned from illegal sources, have compelled the government to lay down this law. The erstwhile release of the Panama Papers and the continual stress that the Modi government has been placing on recovering black money has probably brought about this drastic change.
Rs 1000 and Rs 500 Currency Notes

The Prime Minister also made a very pointed reference to the terrorism that is exercised by neighboring country Pakistan using forged currency. It is very well known that the notes that have been banned are also the most forged ones. India has been suffering badly because of the enormous amount of counterfeit notes that are still in circulation.
The 500 rupee note is the worst sufferer followed by the 1000 rupee note. In order to put a stop to all these illegal practices, this decision was suddenly announced.
Government officials have gone on record saying that this element of surprise was badly needed so that people could not convert their black money into white money very easily. Assurances have also been provided by finance minister Arun Jaitley that if income is legitimate, then exchanging money or depositing it won't result in any problem.
