What is it?
- Actually the truck, in the month of February was carrying liquidity of 1.20 Cr from RBI to Udaipur district of Rajasthan for Circulation
- Due to an accident on the way the truck was overturned and placed all the coins on the street as shattered liquidity.
- The money scatter was taken by locals and other passers, putting in bags and pockets till the time police came and took control
- When later police started counting, in the report filed, it was amounting to 15 lakhs only
- In reality, it has got nothing to do with demonitization
