Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das said there is no such plan.

 



Reports had said that printing of the new Rs.1000 notes had already started. It was reported that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) had initially planned to launch the notes in January, two months after the demonetisation drive was launched.

The old Rs.1000 and Rs.500 notes were scrapped because the denominations were used as black money. The two denominations formed the maximum chunk of fake currencies in India.

Das also addressed the shortage of cash in ATMs.
