Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said the government will go through all personal records since Independence, if required, on the issue of black money and no violator would be spared.
"We will check all the records since Independence. If I come across any unaccounted cash, no one will be spared," Modi said, addressing the Indian diaspora in Kobe, Japan.
He said if the money that surfaces in the banking system comes without its legitimacy and source, then there will be proper scrutiny since the beginning.
"I believe very clearly, that unaccounted money if it comes to light, then the accounts will be scanned from Independence."
He said the government would bring in as many people as possible to do this work.
His remarks come in the wake of the government demonetizing Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes from midnight of November 8.
