The use of the old Rs 500 notes has been exempted, effective midnight. Hence, it is not possible for people to make payments for utility services and to pay bills at government hospitals, with the old Rs 500 notes.
Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das tweeted on Wednesday regarding the news-
Exemptions for use of old Rs.500 notes will end on 15 Dec midnight.Sections of media reporting wrongly as if it’s tonight.

Well, if you still have old Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes at home then you need not worry, as you can still deposit the old decommissioned Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes in the bank till December 30, 2016.
