The Reserve Bank of India has decided to ban the Rs. 2000 denomination banknotes from circulation in view of the some factors and in conformity with its “Clean Note Policy.” The Rs. 2000 banknotes will continue to be accepted as legal money.

The RBI introduced Rs.2000 denomination banknote in November 2016 under Section 24(1) of RBI Act, 1934, primarily to meet the currency requirement of the economy in an expeditious manner after the withdrawal of legal tender status of all Rs.500 and Rs.1000 banknotes in circulation at that time.

Approximately 89% of Rs.2000 banknotes were issued before to March 2017 and have reached the end of their anticipated life-span of 4-5 years. The total value of these banknotes in circulation has decreased from Rs.6.73 lakh crore on March 31, 2018 (37.3% of Notes in Circulation) to Rs.3.62 lakh crore on March 31, 2023 (only 10.8% of Notes in Circulation).
