Whenever we heard about fake currency racket, the first thing that comes to our mind is that the shopkeeper is taking our five hundred rupees putting in front of light and scanning with his eyes. Rather than that, we can’t imagine what if our currency note was fake? But RBI (Reserve Bank of India) has embedded several security features on all Indian currency notes.
Long queues in front of ATM’s and people are rushing to the banks after the announcement made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi of demonetizing the Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency notes across the country. This bold step is taken to stop the black money in India.
People are trying to swap their old notes to the newly released 500 and 2000 rupee notes. In this process, all are forgetting about whether the note that you have bought is original or fake. Some scammers are taking this as an advantage and releasing the fake currency notes.
