The whole country went running to nearby ATMs and banks as soon as demonetization was announced by our honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi. More recently, just as the ‘junta’ was getting used to the new Rs.500 and Rs.2000 notes, the RBI decided to introduce the new Rs.50 and Rs.200 notes. In any case, one should not be worried since the old Rs.50 notes will still be legal tender. As far as the Rs.200 notes are concerned, they shall be launched on 25th August 2017.
