2000 rupee note exchange will be problematic
Suppose you have Rs 20 lakh in black in Rs 2000notes. You can't deposit it in your account bcoz it's unaccounted for.
Contact a bank manager. Tell him he can keep 10% as commission...or Rs 2 lakh.
Manager digs into the vast repository of Aadhar of his account holders.
All he needs is 100 aadhaar to fill the request slips, deposit the Rs 20 lakh & exchange it with other denomination notes
This will play out across branches all around the country. Its what happened in 2016. It will happen again in the next 4 months.
If the need was to unearth black money or destroy it, the solution was simple--no exchange, only deposit in the bank accounts.
The option to exchange is a loophole kept deliberately to facilitate corruption.
