Children’s Play Bank notes of the denomination of Rs 100/- are being circulated in market along with the official currency notes.
A vegetable vendor received such a note from one of the customers in Gokulpeth market on Tuesday. Later, he realised that this note is unacceptable in circulation as ‘For Project School Use Only’ printed in red ink on the front right side and left at back side, number as IBB 000000 not bigger in order, no signature of Governor, printed as CHILDREN BANK OF INDIA instead of RESERVE BANK OF INDIA etc was noticed. The printing of this note resembled the original one.
The incident came to light when he was telling about such a note to a group of persons at a tea stall at Maharajbag Square.
Although it is difficult for him to identify the customer, who handed him over the fake note, he not only becomes alert while accepting money, but also started losing faith in his customers.
