KARACHI: The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has reminded people that September 30 is the last date for exchanging old-design and bigger size banknotes of Rs500. In a press release issued on Thursday, the central bank said people could exchange these notes from field offices of the SBP Banking Services Corporation and branches of all banks including microfinance banks. The central bank cautioned people that it would neither exchange nor be liable to pay any value of such banknotes after the deadline as from October 1 the old-design Rs500 banknotes would cease to be legal tender.
