Punishment for hoarding scrap

With just one more day for December 30, the last day for handing in all old currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000, there is rather ridiculous 'threat' doing the rounds.  Namely that those holding back these old notes will be punished!

Well the Times of India, is conducting an online poll for the same with the question
Is it fair to punish people for holding old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes after Dec 30? 
The options given: Yes or No.
As of Dec. 29, 1800 hrs (GMT), the percentage reads: Yes: 59% and No: 41%
Really???

It is akin to asking 'Is it fair to punish people for hoarding old newspaper?' And people responding, yes they are liable to punishment! For what? Hoarding scrap?
