Old currency notes of Rs 500 could be used for making payments in government hospitals for medical treatment and at pharmacies in government hospitals for buying medicines with doctor's prescription, it said.

"Such currency notes can also be used for making purchases at Consumer Cooperative Stores operated under authorisation of central or state governments with identity proof. Such purchases would be limited to Rs 5,000 at a time.

"The old currency notes of Rs 500 can also be used for making purchase at milk booths operating under authorisation of the central and state government like VITA and at government milk plants.
