2000 Rupees notes Deposit: If you are one of those who have deposited Rs 2000 notes and have not returned it to the bank or the Reserve Bank of India, then this news is for you. People can now send their Rs 2,000 notes to the regional office of the Reserve Bank through registered post post to deposit them in their bank accounts. This is an easy option for those who live far away from the regional offices of the Reserve Bank.
Rohit P, Regional Director, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said, “We encourage customers to send Rs 2000 notes to RBI through insured post for direct deposit in their account in the most convenient and secure manner. This will save them the hassles of travelling to the designated branches and standing in line.”
He said that both TLR and Insured Post options are highly secure and there should be no fear in the minds of the public about these options. The Delhi office has received around 700 TLR forms so far. He said the RBI is again including these two options in its communication in addition to the exchange facility in its office.
On May 19, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had announced the withdrawal of Rs 2,000 notes.
