"Have reviewed the currency situation in the country. Overall there is more than adequate currency in circulation and also available with the banks. The temporary shortage caused by 'sudden and unusual increase' in some areas is being tackled quickly," Jaitley tweeted.
His tweet came following some reports that ATMs have run out of money in some parts of the country.
According to Reserve Bank of India data, currency in circulation as on April 6 was Rs 18.17 lakh crore.
Industry experts feel the shortage has been caused because of cash hoarding of the Rs 2,000 currency notes.
