By demonetising Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a bold step to curb black money in India. While there have been mixed reactions to PM Modi’s surprising move.
But people need to be vigilant about dealing with the new Rs 2,000 notes as there might be some scammers trying to take advantage of the little-to-no-knowledge available to the common man and trick them with some fake notes.
Here’s how to tell the difference between a real note and a fake one.
1. the colour of the note is magenta
2. it’s dimension is 66mm x 166mm
3. India’s Mars orbiter, Mangalyaan is printed on its back side.
4. Just next to Mahatma Gandhi portrait, letters “RBI” & “2000” are embossed in tiny font.
5. RBI Governor’s signature & symbol could be seen on exact right side of Mahatma Gandhi portrait.
6. then, there is colour changing security thread just near to RBI emblem.
7. a serial number can be seen starting from a smaller and increasing in size on the bottom right and top left of the note.
8. a ₹2000 mark in colouring changing ink can be found on exact above right bottom serial number.
