The CM tweeted that similar instructions would be given through the Maharashtra state board of technical education to the affiliated institutes, the CM tweeted after the meeting.

The decision will benefit millions of students who would be paying mid-term fees in coming days. The banks which are overburdened with people rushing to withdraw the money or swap the old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes could not have handled additional work of issuing demand drafts at this juncture, an official said.

Meanwhile, the school bus operators who had said the buses would not ply if the payments were not made in time today agreed to continue their service after holding discussions with the government, Fadnavis tweeted. Payment of utility bills (electricity, water), property tax and other government dues with the old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes had been extended to November 24, the CM said.

This is will help farmers reach the consumers’ market with more ease and will also help them get better price for their produce, said the CM.
