Govt to withdraw Rs 2000 notes?..Good quality fakes flood market

New Delhi: The chances that you will not be able to recognise a fake Rs 2,000 note are very high. The government is worried about the security features in the new Rs 2,000 note, and the red flag has been raised by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

This is really scary. NIA has said that the fake notes seized recently are of good  quailty. It has said that the forgers are getting better at copying the security features.

The NIA said that fakes seized immediately after note ban were mostly photocopies and of poor quality. But those seized now are of "good quality", and nine of the 17 security features seemed to have been copied well, media reports said. Now a detailed analysis is being done to find out the exact number of security features that have been copied.  

BSF had recently seized 100 fake Rs 2,000 notes from Malda district in West Bengal.It is the biggest such seizure from the Indo-Bangla border after note ban.

An earlier report had said that 90% of all fake notes in India enter through Malda. Pakistan's ISI prints fake Indian currency and uses network of criminals like Dawood Ibrahim to send these notes into india through the porous Indo-Bangla border.
