Photos of Rs. 2000 denomination notes go viral on Twitter, but the RBI says they have no knowledge of this.

On October 21, The Hindu BusinessLine reported that such notes will be in circulation and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has completed all the necessary preparation for its introduction. However, it also states clearly that there is no official word from either the RBI or the government on the introduction of the new denomination note.

But that didn’t deter Twitterati from speculating about it:

Others requested verification from the authorities:

Later this evening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the abolition of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 currency notes, in a dramatic move aimed at stamping out corruption and illicit funds from the economy.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will issue a new set of currency notes of Rs 2000 and Rs 500 , with a completely new design, later.

Looks like it is time to colour coordinate your wallets as the new currency notes pour in!
