RTI applicant Mohan Kumar Sharma filed a plea on November 26, 2016 — nearly 18 days after demonetisation of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 was announced by the Prime Minister — seeking to know the date of deposit of Rs 15 lakh in the account of each citizen as promised by Modi.
The PM's Office has now responded that this cannot be considered "information" under the rules of the Right To Information Act.
In 2014, Mr Modi, while campaigning for the Lok Sabha election, promised to bring back black money from abroad to India and deposit Rs. 15 lakh from it to every citizen's bank account.
