If you still have pink notes of Rs 2000, then go to the bank today and deposit them or exchange them. Today is its last chance.

Individuals/entities present in India can also send Rs 2000 notes to 19 regional offices of RBI through India Post. This amount will be deposited in their bank accounts in India.
Rs 2000 note came into circulation during demonetisation
Let us tell you that on May 19, the Reserve Bank of India had announced to remove these pink notes from circulation and had given the facility for their return till September 30, 2023. However, at the last moment this deadline was extended to October 7. The Rs 2,000 note came into the market in the year 2016, when the government had announced to remove the largest currency notes in circulation i.e. Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes from circulation. During demonetization, a new note of Rs 500 and a pink note of Rs 2000 were issued in place of Rs 1000. But when notes of other denominations came in sufficient quantity in circulation, then RBI stopped printing of Rs 2000 notes from the year 2018-19.
