The Indian Government is expected to saveforeign exchange worth Rs 1,500 crore by commissioning two new bank paper lines in Hoshangabad and Mysore for indigenously printing Indian currency.

The New Bank Note Paper Line of 6,000 metric tonnes (MT) capacity at Security Paper Mill (SPM), Hoshangabad in Madhya Pradesh will be inaugurated tomorrow by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, while the Bank Note Paper Line in Mysore with 12,000 MT capacity is expected to be commissioned by the year end.

“The combined savings of foreign exchange from these two Bank Note projects will be about Rs 1,500 crore in the coming years,” a finance ministry said in a statement.

The production of the Bank Note paper from these two units will reduce the import considerably, it said.

This will also reduce possibility of diversion of the paper supplied by the foreign suppliers to the other destinations for the purpose of generating the fake currency, it said.

“Commissioning of this project is part of Make-in-India, Indigenisation of Currency and to become self-reliant in production of the raw materials requirement for the production of the Bank Notes,” it said.

At the same time, the Finance Minister will flag off the first consignment of Rs 1,000 Bank Note paper made indigenously for Currency Note Press, Nashik.

Security Printing and Minting Corporation of India Limited (SPMCIL) has also set up another Joint Venture Company called Bank Note Paper Mill India Pvt at Mysore besides SPM, Hoshangabad.

SPMCIL has nine units engaged in minting of coins, printing of banknotes, passports, postal stationery, non-judicial stamp papers, and other security documents & security paper.
