The Reserve Bank of India has directed banks to maintain data on a daily basis on the amount of 2000 rupees notes exchanged and the amount that has been deposited into accounts.


The central Bank has added that banks will have to submit the information as and when called for.


In a circular issued today, RBI has said that banks must maintain adequate shaded waiting space and drinking water considering the summer season.


In the circular the RBI has mentioned that the facility of exchange of 2000 rupees banknotes across the counter shall be provided to the public, in the usual manner.
