Old currency notes worth 1.12 lakhs found to be fake
Fake old currency notes deposited in 7 banks of Udaipur.
RBI, Jaipur has registered a case in Surajpole police station as per which old currency notes worth 1,12,500 rupees deposited in 7 banks of Udaipur were found to be fake. It is being estimated that these old currency notes were deposited during the time of demonetisation that took place 2 years back.
While RBI was inspecting the currency, they discovered that there was fake currency among the notes that were deposited in banks of Udaipur. The case was registered with Gandhi Nagar police station in Jaipur, but since the currency came from Udaipur banks the case was handed over to Udaipur’s police station. The issue is still under investigation but the probabilities of currency being deposited during demonetisation cannot be ruled out. The notes have also been checked in Nasik and they endorsed the fact that they are fake. It has been informed that the fake currency notes came from 7 banks in Udaipur which are ICICI, Karnataka Bank, Urban Co-operative bank, Allahabad Bank, Bank of Baroda, Mahila Co-operative Bank and State Bank of India. The denominations are 98 bills of 1000 rupees and 29 bills of 500 rupees.(media reports)
