The RBI has decided to increase the cash withdrawal limit from ATMs to Rs 4,500 per day from the present Rs 2,500 with effect from January 1.
However, there is no change in the weekly withdrawal limits, which stays at Rs 24,000.
“On a review of the position, the daily limit of withdrawal from ATMs has been increased (within the overall weekly limits specified) with effect from January 01, 2017, from the existing Rs 2500/- to Rs 4500/- per day per card.
There is no change in weekly withdrawal limits. Such disbursals should predominantly be in the denomination of Rs 500,” said RBI in a statement.
Earlier today, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had said that RBI has enough currency and situation of cash supply has improved significantly.
Friday was the last day of the 50-day window to deposit demonetised notes in banks.
