Indian banknotes change sparks worry in Mumbai

Two of India's most widely used currency notes have just become worthless.

It comes after a surprise announcement by the Prime Minister in an attempt to crack down on corruption and illegal cash holdings.

Lesser denominations are still in use and there is an option to exchange the old notes starting Thursday.

But India's banks will be closed to the public tomorrow and as Yogita Limaye reports from Mumbai, the sudden decision has many people worried.
