New Delhi: The government on Monday allowed farmers to purchase seeds with the demonetised bank notes of Rs 500 value.

The seeds, using old notes, can be bought from the outlets of central or state governments, state-run enterprises and national or state seeds companies and agricultural universities upon furnishing a valid proof of identity.

"The government is committed to ensure that the farmers are suitably facilitated during the Rabi season," an official statement said.
