The government should allow old Rs 500 notes to remain in circulation along with new notes. Also Rs 100, Rs 50, Rs 10 notes must be made easily available.

“The Rs 1,000 notes may be withdrawn when circulation improves by December 30, or at your discretion,” she said, adding there was no need for anymore “faltu, action-less announcements. Sometimes blunders lead to more blunders”.
