New Delhi, 18 Nov 2016 : “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.

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

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