Nashik press sends first lot of 5 million new Rs 500 notes to RBI

There seems to be some relief in sight for citizens across the country reeling under the currency ban+ as the Currency Note Press (CNP), Nashik, has started dispatching new notes of Rs 500 denomination to the Reserve Bank of India.

“The CNP has already sent the first consignment of five million pieces of the new Rs 500 note and another five million pieces are to be dispatched by Wednesday,” an official said on Saturday.

The CNP, which is one of the nine units of the Security Printing and Minting Corporation of India Ltd (SPMCIL), is also printing notes of Rs 20, Rs 50 and Rs 100 in large numbers, the official said.

The government scrapped the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes+ with effect from Tuesday midnight and introduced new notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2,000. Although the Rs 2,000 notes have come into circulation, the new Rs 500 note is yet to be passed on.

Sources said that the RBI has already printed the Rs 2,000 and Rs 500 notes at its two printing units in Mysore in Karnataka and Salboni in West Bengal. The Rs 500 note is being printed at SPMCIL’s two presses in Nashik and Dewas in Madhya Pradesh.

According to sources, CNP has been given a target of 400 million pieces of the Rs 500 note by the end of the current financial year. The printing of the notes started two weeks ago.

The SPMCIL, which prints currency notes, security documents and manufactures coins, has nine units across the country, including two each in Nashik and Hyderabad and one each in Mumbai, Kolkata, Noida, Dewas and Hoshangabad.
