16 November 2016 Current Affairs: The Reserve Bank of India today said that no exchange or deposit facility old denomination Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes will be allowed at District Central Cooperative Banks. However the RBI clarified that DCCBs can allow existing customers to withdraw upto Rs 24,000 per week.
The Reserve Bank has also advised all banks to permit withdrawal of cash by DCCBs from their accounts based on their need. The regulator also clarified that the cash withdrawal limit of Rs 24,000 per week was not applicable to withdrawal of cash by a DCCB from its account with any other bank.
