Black money is then used to fuel all the corruption, which takes place in the country. All illegal activity such as smuggling, corruption and even terrorism, is financed using black money.

The RBI will issue 2000 denomination banknotes, in the Mahatma Gandhi (New) series, without the inset letter, bearing the signature of RBI Governor, Urjit Patel and the year of printing “2016” on the reverse of the bank note.
These notes will have intaglio, or raised printing of Mahatma Gandhi portrait. They will also have Ashoka Pillar emblem, bleed lines and an identity mark.
