The Finance Ministry  said on Friday that  it  was a myth that the  lockers  would be sealed  or  new   Rs 2,000 bank notes are bleeding  because of the poor quality of ink

“Myth: Next move is to seal bank lockers and confiscate gold, diamonds and jewellery. Reality: This is baseless. There is no proposal to seal bank lockers and confiscate the jewellery,” the ministry tweeted in its official Twitter account.


The ministry also said the Rs 2,000 notes have a safety feature, which is called “intaglio” (a design that is incised or engraved into a material).

“To identify a genuine note when you rub it against a cloth, a turbo-electric effect is generated and it is due to this that the note’s ink gets transferred on to the cloth,” the ministry said.
