    “Banks have been advised to increase the Business Correspondents limit to Rs 2,500 for withdrawal from bank accounts,” the finance ministry said.

    The upper limit for weekly withdrawal from bank account has been raised to Rs 24,000 from Rs 20,000.

    The decisions follow a meeting here involving the Finance Ministry and the Prime Minister’s Office and came a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi returned to India from Japan.

    Banks have also been told to cater separately to senior citizens and the handicapped.

    Hundreds of thousands of people have virtually mobbed banks and ATMs all over the country since Thursday when the banks opened after a day’s closure following Modi’s dramatic announcement to spike the 500 and 1,000 rupee notes.

    The Finance Ministry said it reviewed all aspects concerning the availability and distribution of all denomination of bank notes following the demonetisation of November 8.

    It said that from November 10 (when the banks reopened) till 5 p.m. of November 13, about Rs 3 lakh crore of old Rs 500 and 1,000 notes had been deposited in the banking system.

    About Rs 50,000 crore had been dispensed to customers by either withdrawal from their accounts or from ATMs or by exchange of old notes.

    The ministry urged people to lodge complaints with District Magistrates and district administrations if hospitals, caterers and tent houses refused to accept cheques, demand drafts and online payment transfer.
