India will begin withdrawing its highest value currency notes from circulation, as announced by the central bank on May 20, 2023. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI), along with other banks and its 19 regional offices, will initiate the exchange of Rs 2000 notes for lower denomination notes starting from May 23. Individuals can exchange or deposit their Rs 2000 notes into their bank accounts until September 30. The announcement generated a wave of memes on the internet, including one from Amul, the popular dairy brand known for its quirky topicals. In their latest topical, Amul depicted their mascot at a money exchange counter, holding a Rs 2000 note in one hand and butter in the other. The headline read, “Now you currensee it, now you don’t,” and below the brand’s logo, they added, “Amul, always in circulation.” The caption of the post on social media was “#Amul Topical: ₹2000 notes to be discontinued.” Take a look:
