Note Mudrana employees working 24 hours to meet demand for currency

Mysuru, November 30
Employees of Bharatiya Reserve Bank Note Mudran Private Limited (BRBNMPL), a completely owned by RBI, are working round the clock to meet the increasing demand for new currency.
According to BJP leader and former Karnataka Minister S A Ramadas, who is the working President of the Bharatiya Reserve Bank Note Mudran Employees’ Union, the printing unit which has 600 employees, who used to work five days a week so far, began toiling all seven days of the week, 24 hours a day, since last two days.
In a statement here, Ramdas said that the entire workforce hopes to give maximum production with the existing machinery.
He has also written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had earlier this month rolled out the demonetisation drive, withdrawing the old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes while introducing the new Rs 2,000 and Rs 500 notes.
Though Ramadas had earlier claimed that the facility in Mysuru was printing both Rs 2,000 and Rs 500 notes, it was later clarified by reliable sources in the BRBNMPL that the Mysuru press was printing only Rs 2,000 currency.
