The nation came to a standstill after PM Narendra Modi announced that Rs.500 and Rs.1000 would cease to be legal tender from midnight tonight. People are panicking about the money, however there is not much to be worried about. Unless you have stack of illegal cash in your basement.

 Here are 10 things that you need to know about the cancellation and how it will affect your life.

 

1. No restrictions of any kind on non-cash payments.

People who have their money safe in their savings accounts need not worry about their notes. There would be no restrictions of any kind on non cash payments by cheques, demand drafts, debit or credit cards and electronic fund transfer.

2. Be prepared to stand in queue at the ATM.

Obviously, you will have to run to the ATM if you don’t have 100 rupee notes because after midnight tonight Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes can’t be used for any transaction. Also on the 9th November and in some places on 10th November, ATMs won’t work
