Twitter has a field day over RBI move to withdraw Rs 2,000 bank notes

It has been almost six years since the central government brought demonetisation across the country, putting an immediate ban on the issuance of all Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi Series.
While the government also introduced new Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 banknotes in exchange for the older ones, the time has now come to bid adieu to these as well, as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced the withdrawal of Rs 2,000 notes from circulation.
In its notification issued on Friday, the central bank said that Rs 2,000 notes will be withdrawn, further asking banks to stop issuing the notes with immediate effect. However, unlike last time, the RBI did state that the notes will stay as legal tender and citizens can get them exchanged by 30 September 2023.
As soon as the announcement came out, it indeed spread like wild fire, engulfing social media platforms with reactions over the matter. Booking a spot in the trending list, #2000Note and #Demonetisation have become the internet’s favourite since Friday. Speaking of which, Twitter is already flooded with users’ reactions as the RBI announcement has clearly sparked a meme fest, taking the microblogging site for a ride!
