This is not the first time Big Bazar has come out with such a different idea. The day demonetisation was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the company had declared that it will continue to accept old notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000. Meanwhile, on the 13th day of demonetisation, the queues outside banks have seemed to have reduced. With that, it has also been reported that 40 per cent of the ATMs are now dispensing Rs 500 and 2000 notes.
According to some bank officials, the queues have reduced relatively due to use of indelible ink. However, the reason behind shortening of queues have not been corroborated so far.
