Farmer receives Rs 2000 notes from SBI Bank without Mahatma Gandhi's image in Madhya Pradesh
Farmers from Sheopur district of Madhya Pradesh were shocked and taken aback on Tuesday when they received newly printed ‘genuine’ Rs 2000 rupee notes without the image of Mahatma Gandhi.
The bank official has clarified that the notes were not fake currency. Instead the official cited misprint as the probable reason behind it.
The incident came to light when some farmers in Badodha tehsil withdrew money from the local State Bank of India branch.
Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation move, new notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2000 were introduced.
