New Delhi: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Tuesday enhanced the cash withdrawal limit at automated teller machines (ATMs) to Rs10,000 per day per card. The limit is set within the existing overall cash withdrawal cap of Rs24,000 per week per account at both banks and ATMs. The Narendra Modi government had imposed restrictions on cash withdrawal and deposits since it announced the decision to demonetise old Rs500, Rs1,000 currency notes on 8 November 2016.

Here is a list of RBI rules on cash withdrawal and deposits as of 19 January:

■ For saving bank account customers, cash withdrawal limit from ATMs now stands at Rs10,000 per day per account. This has been raised from the previous Rs4,500 daily limit.

■ There has been no change, however, in the weekly cash withdrawal limit at banks and ATMs, which still is at Rs24,000 per saving bank account.

■ The withdrawal limit from current accounts has been extended from 0,000 to 100,000 per week.

■ The withdrawal limit remains capped at Rs10,000 per month for fully KYC compliant Jan Dhan Yojana account customers. For non or partially-KYC customers, it stays at Rs5,000 per account within the monthly limit of Rs10,000.

■ The tax department has asked banks to report deposits in any account aggregating Rs10 lakh in a year, as well as cash payments of Rs1 lakh or more on credit card bills. The department also reiterated its November 2016 instruction asking banks to report all cash deposits of Rs2.5 lakh or more made in one or more accounts of a person during 9 November to 30 December 2016.

■ The last date for depositing old demonetised currency notes of Rs500 and Rs1,000 at banks was 30 December 2016. After the 30 December deadline, exchange of old notes allowed only at RBI offices subject to regulations till 31 March. However, confusion persists over whether these can be deposited at specified RBI branches until 31 March this year after submitting a declaration form as PM Modi announced on 8 November. Later, the RBI said that only Indians who were abroad during 9 November to 30 December 2016 have been given a three-month grace period till 31 March to deposit the junked notes, while for the NRIs, it is six months till 30 June.

■ RBI has kept limits on prepaid payments services providers or e-wallets to load up to Rs20,000, instead of Rs10,000 before. The merchants can transfer funds from such PPIs to their own linked bank accounts upto Rs50,000 per month, without any limit per transaction.

■ Traders registered with the APMC and mandis can withdraw up to Rs50,000 a week from their current accounts.

■ Additional 60-day grace period for farmers to repay their crop loans and avail 3% interest subvention. Farmers allowed to withdraw up to Rs25,000 a week from their loan or deposit accounts.
