New Delhi, 10 Nov 2016  : Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said that people can withdraw the new series of Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 notes from the ATMs from Thursday midnight.

“ATMs will start functioning from today (Thursday) midnight. People can withdraw the new currency notes,” Jaitley told TV channel CNN-News 18 in an interview.

The government demonetised Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes from November 8 midnight. New notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 denomination are being issued starting Thursday in banks and post offices.

Lakhs of anxious people made a beeline to banks and post offices on Thursday to exchange their old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes. Most private and public sector bank branches were seen jampacked with customers.

With the ATMs giving out new currency from midnight, it is expected to ease the queues before the banks and post offices that were witnessed entire day on Thursday.

Jaitley said that a total amount of Rs 14 lakh crore is in circulation in the economy in high denomination notes. “But how much will be replaced by people, I cannot predict,” he said.
