The printing of Rs 2000 (Rs 2000 Currency Note) notes has also stopped.” RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das also said, "I want to make it clear that this is a part of the RESERVE Bank's currency management operations.

We are withdrawing Rs 2,000 notes from circulation, but they continue to be valid tenders.” Watch the video...
