No wonder that with every passing day closing in to December 30, the time limit asked by Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi to normalise supply of money at the banks and ATM counters, social media is already abuzz with the rumors of Rs 1000 currency note making a comeback in the monetary system. It does not stop there. It further says that the recently introduced Rs 2000 currency note will be ousted from the circulation. ABP news has made further inquiry in to the story that is going viral on social media.

All of these will happen from January 1, said the rumor. Netizens were also taken by surprise when pictures of tentative Rs 1000 started to surface on social media platform like Twitter.

It goes on to say that since many people have stashed large amounts of Rs 2000 notes by unlawful means they will not be able to deposit them in the banks. However there has been no official statement regarding this from the side of the government. The deputy governor of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), R Gandhi have denied the authenticity of any such reports of the comeback of Rs 1000 currency note.

    If I had black money, I would be buying a lot of jewelery for my wife and daughters. And my sons would look more like America rappers covered in gold and diamonds.

      Modi should order the printing of 1 crore Rs 100 notes and flood those. Let the ders d those. It will require 10 times for size and weight to carry around. Also the Re. has stabilized at around 67 against the dollar. Efforts should be made to reduce it to Rs. 50 and hold there.

            Hope this is true. So the "bad apple" back managers would've been identified by then too!
