Earlier, government has plan to launch new notes of Rs 1000
Prior, a senior government official had said that the Reserve Bank of India and the government are planning to introduce the new series of Rs 1,000notes. He mentioned that the plan was to launch the currency notes in January but the plan was delayed due to vital need to supply Rs 500notes.
After an announcement of demonetization by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8, all the old notes of Rs 500 and Rs 100 were recalled from the market by RBI and released new currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs2, 000 with higher security features.
No plans to introduce ₹1000 notes. Focus is on production and supply of ₹500 and lower denomination notes.
