Nepal bank announces ban of Indian notes above Rs 100
The Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) on Sunday issued a circular for the institutions licensed by it notifying them about the ban, reports Xinhua news agency.
The decision to ban these notes has come a time when the NRB has requested the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) arequesting the latter to allow Nepal to use currency notes with all denominations.
Currently, only the notes with a denomination of Rs 100 and below are freely exchangeable in Nepal.
