Shiv Sena takes credit for RBI accepting demonetized notes from co-operative bank

24 June 2017

While post offices and commercial banks were allowed to receive the old high-value currency notes till 30 December, district central cooperative banks were allowed to accept these only till 14 November.

A banking analyst, who did not wish to be named, told Scroll.in that this could mean that the counting exercise for withdrawn notes could be coming to an end as the government or the central bank are yet to publish the final numbers for the currency exchanged during the demonetisation period.

Many cooperative banks said the RBI had not been accepting their huge stockpile of old Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 currency notes that were banned under the demonetisation drive started on November 8 past year. Sources at the Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank, the apex body for all DCCBs in the state, confirmed that as of March 18, such banks have Rs2,771.86 crore in demonetised notes.

Kerala Finance Minister Thomas Isaac had even said that cooperative banks in the state have Rs 90,000 crore in deposits and Rs 75,000 crore in credits.

Officials said the deposits would be accepted in pursuance of an assurance given to the Supreme Court by the government that proper verification of each account would be done before any decision was taken.

The deposits can be made under Specified Bank Notes (Deposits by Banks, Post Offices and District Central Cooperative Banks) Rules, 2017.
