SBI, the largest of the Indian Banks, has received around Rs. 1.93 lakh crore from November 10 till November 25 of this month in cash as deposits.
The exchange of old denomination notes of 500 and 1000 was Rs. 7,905 crore and withdrawals amounted to Rs. 51,829 crore as per the Bank’s statement. Here the money remitted by Rural and Semi urban folks accounted for 54-55 per cent of the total.
