What's happened to the Indian Rs 500 and Rs 1000 bank notes since demonetisation started?
On November 8, the Indian government demonetised -- it withdrew from circulation notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 (worth around $7 and $15 respectively) to crack down on "black money", or undeclared cash.
The Indian public were given until December 31, or 52 days, to exchange these notes at banks.
So, what’s been happening to these notes?
