Thanks in advance for making this announcement; but what we are looking for is when do you propose to bring out polymer currency series?

this is more urgent to stop this countrefeit notes in circulation.

can't we learn from the Australian experience? They don't have porous borders, we do; besides we have unfriendly neighbours who can't stand our progress and well being

wake up RBI; somebody should be responsible to respond and say when they intend to come out with polymer notes of higher denomination like Rs 500 and 1000 which is where fake notes are literally shaking our economy and they will play really hell in the next elections.
