RBI refutes claim of Rs 500 note going missing
RBI denied the claim of missing Rs 500 note. In a tweet, RBI wrote, it has been informed that in many media reports, the news of Rs 500 notes disappearing from the system is going on. These reports are not correct. Totally wrong. These reports are based on misinterpretation of information collected from Printing Presses under the Right to Information Act, 2005. RBI said in its statement, it may be noted that all bank notes supplied to RBI from the printing presses are properly accounted for. It is also informed that there are robust systems in place for reconciliation of banknotes printed at the presses and supplied to the Reserve Bank of India, which include protocols for monitoring the printing, storage and distribution of banknotes. RBI has advised not to trust any such misleading news. The statement said, in such cases, rely on the information published by RBI from time to time.
