NEWYORK: November 27th ,2016, a group of NRI activist led by Juned Qazi demanded for Currency Exchange facilities to be extended over a period allowing all NRI the opportunity to not let money convert to paper.

The protest was peaceful and done in front of Indian Consulate, NEW YORK. Memorandum was handed to Deputy Consulate General Mr. Manoj Mahapatro addressing to and urging the Prime Minister and Govt of India to think about NRI rights globally.
The demands were specific and relevant to the outcries heard within the community of currency held by hard working individuals turning to worthless paper. Most importantly the NRI must be allowed a extended time period within which to exchange the currency upon arrival to India. The group also demanded the same opportunity for tourist who have recently visited India and may possess some currency.
Lastly, they ask the Govt to allow a capped amount of currency to be allowed to be brought back upon return from India which is a convenience matter for frequent travelers.
