Public Notification

Stocks of legal tender Indian Rupee cash have reached critical levels since we are not getting fresh stocks from India. The limited cash stock is being released judiciously by the RMA. In addition, we have requested BOBL and BNBL to set up dedicated counters in their Thimphu and Phuentsholing offices to facilitate the issuance of pre-paid INR cards. We request the public to postpone your travels to India unless absolutely necessary in light of the temporary INR cash shortages. We are continuing our dialogues with counterparts in India to procure fresh stocks.
