India cenbank says got back almost all of banned currency notes

MUMBAI, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Indians returned almost all of the estimated 15.4-15.5 trillion rupees ($242.13 billion) in high-currency bills removed from circulation in a shock move late last year, the Reserve Bank of India said in its annual report out on Wednesday.

India received a total of 15.28 trillion rupees in banned 500- and 1,000-rupee currency bills, according to the central bank.
