They were supposed to replace the 1961 ones by january, and the maximum exchange amount was 150 rubles per person. Later the increasing inflation led to printing 200, 500 and then 1000 ruble notes. The small notes underwent small cosmetic changes, like the addition of a white field on the left side and the removal of text in regional languages.
