Bhubaneswar, Nov 16:

The new Rs 500 currency notes will be available across Odisha from tomorrow, informed Sarada Prasanna Mohanty, General Manager (GM), Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Bhubaneswar.


“We received the new Rs 500 notes at RBI here today. However, the notes are less in number. We are trying to make the notes reach in selected chests of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack by this evening and other parts of the state by tomorrow,” Mohanty said.

“The ATMs are being configured for new Rs 2000 notes. However, configuration for Rs 500 notes is yet to be done. Hence, the new Rs 500 notes will be initially available at bank counters,” he said.

The official also urged people not to believe the rumour of Rs 10 coins declared invalid by the RBI. Retailers have been asked to accept the coins, he added.
