MANILA - The Friday deadline to exchange demonetized bank notes will stay, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas said.

The deadline is "final and non-extendable" since it had been moved thrice, BSP managing director for currency management Carlyn Pangilinan said Thursday.

"We remind the public that the deadline for exchanging the New Design Series bank notes for New Generation Currency banknotes is tomorrow, Friday," Pangilinan said. 

Those who waited in long lines line but were not accommodated due to lack of time on Dec. 27 and 28 will be given official forms to allow them to exchange their old notes on Jan. 3, she said.
