Ad­dress­ing a farm­ers’ con­ven­tion here, Mr Chouhan said, “The cur­rency worth ` 15,00,000 crore was in cir­cu­la­tion be­fore de­mon­eti­sa­tion. Af­ter this ex­er­cise ( de­mon­eti­sa­tion), the cur­rency in cir­cu­la­tion in­creased to ` 16,50,000 crore. But notes of ` 2,000 are missing from the mar­ket.” He was ap­par­ently re­fer­ring to news re­ports of ATMs run­ning out of cash at some places in the state.
