New Delhi – While demanding Rs 2,000 note to be phased out, BJP MP Sushil Kumar Modi questioned, when developed nations like the USA, China, Japan do not have currency notes of higher denomination, why does India need Rs 2,000 note ? He added that when the circulation of Rs 1,000 notes has been stopped, there is no need for Rs 2,000 notes. BJP MP Sushil Kumar Modi claimed at  Rajya Sabha that Rs 2,000 note has become synonymous with black money and demanded to phase out Rs 2,000 notes.

2. The new Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 notes were introduced after PM Modi decided to demonetise on 8th November 2016 to eradicate black money. According to the information provided by the Government, the Reserve Bank of India has stopped printing Rs 2,000 notes for some time.
