Mumbai: The Maharashtra Cabinet on Tuesday decided to set up a sub-committee to monitor and suggest measures in an endeavour to give relief to the common man in the wake of demonetisation.

The sub-committee under the chairmanship of state Finance Minister will have Ministers for Agriculture, Transport, Health and Education as its members.

The committee will monitor implementation of various decisions taken in the regard and also suggest measures to be taken time to time.

Earlier in the day, Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das announced that those who exchange cash at bank branches would receive an indelible ink mark on their finger to prevent repeated conversions.

Das explained that this was in response to reports of people attempting to convert their black money to white by visiting banks multiple times.
