Amid the cash-starved condition of the economy and the daily altered demonetisation policy rules, a fresh news has caught the attention of people as the pictures of these Rs 1000 notes have been doing rounds of the internet. After PM Narendra Modi announced the demonetisation policy on November 8, the old notes of high denomination have been out of use since they aren’t a legal tender now, in their place new Rs 2000 and Rs 500 have been issued.
New Rs 1000 notes: Fake or Real?
To fight off the demonetisation muddle, the government was sought to print more new notes. And now, the new Rs 1000 notes are considered as government’s recent move to provide relief to the masses as the high denomination notes of Rs 2000 have no takers since there is a dearth of change available with the retailers and the shopkeepers. However, the government has not issued any official statement regarding the same.
The new Rs 1000 notes are quite similar to the Rs 2000 notes recently released by the government.
The green notes of Rs 1000 are fake and the news about the government releasing the notes of Rs 1000 denomination is a hoax too. The old notes of Rs 1000 were demonetised by the Modi government and at that time the government had made it clear that the same denomination notes will not be printed in near future and neither does the government intends to bring them back into the economy anytime soon.
As far as the new note is concerned, it is clearly visible that whosoever printed the note forgot to change the alphabetical description and “two thousand rupees” is written on the top in Hindi.
