The government on November 8 had banned the high denomination bank notes to fight against corruption and black money in a surprise decision that prompted people to stand in serpentine queues outside banks, ATMs and post office to exchange their old notes. Now, its seventh day and the situation is still worse, however, government and people are expecting normalisation from the end of this week as new Rs 500 notes have also hit the banks, ATMs and post offices.
