During his address to the nation, while informing the country of the decision Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given time till December 30 for the people of the country to deposit their old notes. After the4 order long queues were seen outside ATMs and banks in the hope of either withdrawing or depositing money. Most of the banks are still accepting old notes but many still run out of currency notes.
