"It is further stated that no gold was shifted by the RBI from India to other countries in 2014 or thereafter. Thus the media reports cited above are factually incorrect," the statement said.

The Congress Party had tweeted a report regarding shifting of 200 tonne of the RBI's gold to Switzerland in 2014.

"Did the Modi govt secretly transport 200 tonnes of RBI's gold to Switzerland in 2014?," the party had tweeted while tagging the report.
