NEW DELHI: The Reserve Bank of India has extended the deadline for exchanging pre-2005 currency notes of various denominations, including 500 and 1,000, by six months till December-end.



"The Reserve Bank of India has extended the date for the public to exchange their pre-2005 banknotes till December 31, 2015," the central bank said in a press release.



RBI had, in December 2014, set the last date to exchange these notes as June-end, asking the public to deposit the old design notes in their bank accounts or exchange them at a convenient bank branch.



It had extended its earlier exchange deadline of January 1 till the end of this month.



Besides being standard international practice to withdraw old series notes, the RBI said the pre-2005 banknotes have fewer security features compared with banknotes printed thereafter, designed to curb the menace of fake currency.



The finance ministry has informed parliament that over 164 crore pre-2005 currency notes of various denominations, with a face value of around 21,750 crore, were shredded in regional offices of the RBI during a 13-month period ending January.
