New Delhi [India], Nov. 10 (ANI): The Delhi Police have made adequate arrangements to ensure law and order and smooth demonetisation process in the national capital.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will launch new Rs. 500 and Rs. 2,000 currency notes from today.

Fearing a jump in footfalls to deposit or withdraw cash following the demonetisation of 500 rupees and 1,000 rupees banknotes, banks will remain open this Saturday and Sunday and its staff will do overtime till 9 p.m. for the next three days to clear the rush.

In a tweet, Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das said for public convenience, banks will remain open on coming Saturday and Sunday. Banks also announced a slew of measures, including extension of banking hours, doing away with ATM charges and expanding credit limits to handle the expected huge rush to tender now defunct 500 rupee and 1000 rupee notes.

The Reserve Bank also came out with an order instructing all the banks to be open for business on the coming weekend, including Sunday.

RBI also said ATMs will remain shut today as well. The nation's largest lender State Bank of India (SBI) has announced an extension in banking hours, till 6 p.m. today.

Each of its branches will be having a dedicated 'exchange counter' to change the currency notes. (ANI)
