After Delhi’s Sangam Vihar, it’s in Meerut city where fake ‘Children Bank of India’ Rs 2,000 notes have been dispensed by an ATM.
The note dispensed from an ATM in Meerut city are similar to those which were earlier found in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh’s
Shahjahanpur district. The note have written on them ‘Bharatiya Manoranjan Bank’ instead of Bharatiya Reserve Bank.
According to reports, a 24-year-old Sunil Dutt had withdrawn Rs 10,000 from a Punjab National Bank (PNB) ATM located in Tejgadi area. The ATM dispensed money in new Rs 2,000 notes but one note that the person got was a fake ‘Children Bank of India’ note.
The fake note that was dispensed from the ATM did not have Rs 2,000 written on it. There was no signature of the RBI Governor and neither there was any serial number. Other deviations on the note include ‘Guaranteed by the Children’s Government’ in place of Guaranteed by the Central Government and a similar ‘churan’ label that was found in fake notes in Delhi.
Following the incident, the bank officials have reported the entire matter to the Reserve Bank of India. Meanwhile further investigation in the case is underway.
