In yet another blunder since all the demonetisation ruckus, new currency notes now have been found without the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi.
New 2000 Rupees notes without Image Of Mahatma Gandhi
Few farmers from a remote village in Madhya Pradesh’s Sheopur district were shocked when they found out that the newly printed Rs 2000 notes which they received from a State Bank of India branch did not had the image of Mahatma Gandhi on it. They thought what anyone would think, that the notes were fake.

But when bank officials were approached, they took back the notes and said they were “genuine”.
The image of Mahatma Gandhi was missing from the notes because of a “printing error”, the farmers were told. Banking and police sources told TOI that many such defective, yet genuine, currency notes were in circulation in the region.
Krishna Meena from Bicchugavdi village didn’t even notice something was amiss when he received a Rs 2000 rupee note from the SBI branch on Tuesday. It was only when he went to the market that he was alerted by another farmer who had two similar notes. Both teamed up and went back to the SBI branch, which promptly took back the “faulty” notes.
“The incident took place at Shivpuri Road branch of SBI. The notes were not counterfeit, but probably there was some printing error. They were taken back as soon as it (the error) was detected,” said Sheopur district manager of SBI, Akash Shrivastav. Shrawanlal Meena, the manager of Shivpuri Road branch, elaborated:
” The space meant for the picture is blank. We have taken the notes back.”
Currency notes with Mahatma Gandhi’s picture were printed and issued by RBI from 1996 onwards. Since then, the ‘Gandhi Series’ of bank notes replaced all previous currency as legal tender. Post demonetisation, the new notes that have been printed were christened as the ‘Mahatma Gandhi New Series’.
This series of ‘faulty’ notes, sources told TOI, were printed at Bank Note Press in Dewas, Madhya Pradesh. The officials concerned could not be contacted despite repeated attempts.
