MUMBAI -- Further relaxing cash withdrawal norms, the Reserve Bank on Monday said overdraft and cash credit account holders can now withdraw up to ₹ 50,000 in a week.

Earlier, current account holders were allowed to withdraw up to ₹ 50,000 in cash, in a week.

"On a review, it has been decided to extend this facility to Overdraft and Cash Credit accounts also," the central bank said.

Accordingly, holders of current/overdraft/cash credit accounts, which are operational for the last three months or more, may now withdraw up to ₹ 50,000 in cash, in a week.

However, this enhanced limit for weekly withdrawal is not applicable for personal overdraft accounts.

The Reserve Bank further said the ₹ 50,000 withdrawals may be disbursed predominantly in ₹ 2,000 denomination bank notes.

Government has taken several decisions to ease withdrawal restrictions for farmers, small traders, Group 'C' employees of Central Government including equivalent levels in the defence and para military forces, railways and CPSEs in the aftermath of the cancellation of the legal tender character of the old ₹ 500 and ₹ 1,000 notes.
