In yet another sign of haste with which the Reserve Bank of India was pushed by the central government to print new currency notes, a customer in Madhya Pradesh has withdrawn Rs 500 notes without Mahatma Gandhi’s photos.
According to news agency ANI, a man in Madhya Pradesh’s Morena received Rs 500 notes from an SBI ATM without Mahatma Gandhi’s image.
This came after several incidents of ATMs dispensing fake Rs 2,000 currency note with “Children Bank of India” printed on it.
In one incident, the fake bank note of Rs 2,000 denomination was dispensed from a private bank ATM in front of Sheetla Mata Mandir.
In a similar case, a Sangam Vihar resident Rohit Kumar had been dispensed four fake notes of Rs 2,000 denomination, bearing “Churan label” and “Children Bank of India” printed on it, from an SBI ATM in Sangam Vihar in south east Delhi, on February 6.
He got four notes of Rs 2,000 which had “Churan label” written on them in place of the official watermark.
The notes also had “PK” written on them in place of the RBI stamp and the top left corner had “Bharatiya Manoranjan Bank” written instead of Reserve Bank of India.
