No plans to demonetise Rs 2,000 currency notes: Govt


The government today clarified that there are no plans to demonetise the new 2,000 rupee currency notes. Minister of State for Home, Kiren Rijiju said, the rumours circulating in the market are baseless and they should not be given attention to.

He was responding to a question of Congress member Madhusudan Mistry in the Rajya Sabha, who wanted to know if the government will demonetise these notes as there were strong rumours. He said, it is not correct that fake currencies cannot be identified saying that counterfeit currency that came into the market after demonetisation were made of low quality paper which was easy to make out.

Stating that the government has adopted many new security features in the new currency notes , Mr Rijiju assured the House that now no one can copy 100 per cent, as there are indigenous design and extra features. He said, the government is more alert and has taken many measures to curb fake currency.
