New Delhi: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has issued a form that is mandatory for every customer to fill up before exchanging the old currency notes which are no longer a legal tender.

“A format which enables banks to capture information about high-denomination notes which are being provided and also what is the requirement which will suffice for purposes of identification,” Anjuly Chib Duggal, Financial Services Secretary, said.

Here is a copy of the form and the readers can save the image from here and use the copy in the banks.

It is advised that as the banks are paying Rs 4,000 per customer per day, customers should fill up the form before going to the bank to save time and hassle.

One also needs to carry a valid ID proof issued by the government, which includes Voter Card, Driving Licence, Pan Card, Aadhar Card, Pass Port or NREGA Card. Both the original and a photocopy of the same should be carried with the filled form.

One needs to fill the number of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 denomination notes to be exchanged. Make sure that the total should not be more than Rs 4,000. This limit has been imposed till November 24.

“We have received clear guidelines from RBI. Nearly 8,800 cash vans and all employees would be working round the clock so that customers are not put to inconvenience,” Rituraj Sinha, President, Cash Logistic Association and Co-chairman of FICCI Private Security Sector Committee, said.
