Karachi, September 24, 2012 (PPI-OT): Seven days are left for exchanging old design and bigger size banknote of Rs 500 denomination from the field offices of SBP Banking Services Corporation (SBP BSC) and branches of all banks.
The State Bank of Pakistan and SBP BSC will neither exchange nor be liable to pay any value of such banknote to any person or a bank after October 1, 2012.
