Mumbai: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Monday rejected reports that old Rs.100, Rs.10 and Rs. 5 notes would be withdrawn from circulation by March-April this year.
“With regard to reports in certain sections of media on withdrawal of old series of Rs.100, Rs.10 & Rs.5 banknotes from circulation in near future, it is clarified that such reports are incorrect” RBI has tweeted.
