Also, the government cleared the air on what has been done to the redundant currency of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 bank notes post the noteban by saying that the central bank after conducting due verification of such withdrawn currency destroyed it. The RBI report released last year said that 99% of the total demonetized currency came back to the system.

In respect of the withdrawal of the high value currency of Rs. 2,000 issued post-demonetisation, the government refuted such a proposal. Arun Jaitley, last year, in a in a written reply to the parliament said that there was no proposal to withdraw Rs 2,000 bank notes.
