“The decision to cancel the legal tender scatters of 500 and 1000 rupees note is a very bold, powerful and decisive step to fight the menace of black money and the use of fake Indian currency notes. Counter fate fake Indian currency notes for financing of terrorism,” Das said.

RBI will release new currency notes with new features, designs and dimensions from 10 November onwards,” he added.
