Cash withdrawal limit from savings bank accounts will be relaxed to 50,000 rupees ($743.27) a week between Feb. 28 and March 13, after which it will be removed, RBI Deputy Governor R. Gandhi said after the monetary policy meeting on Wednesday.

The RBI had imposed these limits in November after the government announced a ban on old high-value currency notes, and began to replace them with new notes.($1 = 67.2700 Indian rupees)
