INDIA-POLITICS-CURRENCY

Indian Economic Affairs Secretary Shashi Kant Das (L) and Governor of the Reserve Bank of India Urjit R. Patel hold up a sample of the new 500 INR note at a press conference in New Delhi on November 8, 2016. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced late November 8 that 500 and 1,000 ($15) rupee notes will be withdrawn from financial circulation from midnight, in a bid to tackle corruption. "To break the grip of corruption and black money, we have decided that the 500 and 1,000 rupee currency notes presently in use will no longer be legal tender from midnight ie 8 November, 2016," Modi said in a special televised address to the nation. / AFP / STR (Photo credit should read STR/AFP via Getty Images)
