Not supplying paper for printing of Indian currency: De La Rue
UK-based bank notes printer De La Rue on Friday clarified that it is in no way associated with printing of currency in India and does not supply currency paper to Pakistan.
Refuting reports that it has been contracted for printing of new Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 notes, the London-listed company in a statement said, “De La Rue is not supplying paper for printing of Indian currency and we are not associated with printing of currency in India at present in any form.”
On Thursday, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had alleged that the company, which finds mention in the Panama papers leaks, has been given contract for printing new currency.
“De La Rue categorically refutes the defamatory and malicious allegations about its business,” it said in the statement.
