Home/ News / India/  Delhi shop owner's idea of capitalising on 2000 withdrawal sends internet into frenzy?

Indians have always been known to have devised innovative ways of building out of trouble. The 2000 note withdrawal announcement by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) might have put Indian in jeopardy, well at least the ones who had those notes in cash, but a ‘pure meat shop’ owner in national capital Delhi harped on the same announcement to increase sales. 

While petrol pumps across cities were struggling to offer change for the highest denomination of Indian currency to their customers, this meat shop owner advertised that customers can purchase products for 2100 and pay 2000, with products worth 100, free of cost.

What an idea!

While food delivery aggregator Zomato ‘jokingly' noted that they witnessed a 72% increase in cash on delivery payments after the RBI instructed member of the public to exchange or deposit their 2000 notes in banks before 30 September. 

A Twitter user took to the micro-blogging platform to share the innovative advertisement by the meat shop owner. "If you think RBI is smart, think again cos Delhites are much smarter. What an innovative way to increase your sales. #2000Note," the Twitter user named Sumit Agarwal posted with the photo.

The tweet generated numerous responses, many of whom praised the shopkeeper for his idea.

Several people had several replies to this innovative advertisement.

Ever since the news of RBI stopping the circulation of 2000 notes emerged, social media has been filled with various stories surrounding the use of the notes.

Recently, at a petrol pump in Uttar Pradesh, an employee removed petrol from a customer's vehicle after he was given a 2000 note as payment.

It is to be noted that 2000 notes can still be used anywhere and can be exchanged for other denominations at banks with a daily limit of 20,000 until September 30.
