A message is becoming increasingly viral on social media that two thousand notes will be closed soon. One thousand notes will be taken instead of them. It is being claimed that a new note of one thousand is going to come from January 1. At the same time, two thousand notes will be returned to the banks. During this, the general public will be allowed to deposit only Rs 50,000 to exchange notes. Only ten days will be given for this. It has been said in the message that therefore you should keep most of the two thousand notes with you. When the team of PIB Fact Check investigated this message, it was found that this message is completely fake and misleading. Do not forward this message. No such message has come from the Government of India.
सोशल मीडिया पर वायरल वीडियों में दावा किया जा रहा कि 1 जनवरी से 1 हजार का नया नोट आने वाले हैं और 2 हजार के नोट बैंकों में वापस लौट जाएंगे। #PIBFactCheck

This message has been shared by PIB Fact Check. It has been said in this that soon these two thousand notes will be closed. One thousand notes will be taken instead of them. PIB says that people should not share the messages further. This creates confusion among the people. In 2016, at the time of demonetisation, notes of five hundred and thousand rupees were closed. For this, people used to queue outside the ATM. Seeing this message, people can remember those days of demonetisation. In this way an atmosphere of fear can be maintained.
