State Bank of India said on Wednesday that it collected Rs 1,14,139 crore in deposits in the last seven days after the government announced the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.

It said there were 151.93 lakh cash withdrawal transactions amounting to Rs 18,665 crore in the last seven days.

One can withdraw cash against withdrawal slip or cheque subject to a weekly limit of Rs 24,000 including withdrawals from ATMs and over the counter from the bank accounts.
