The new Rs 2000 notes are not being accepted by many as they are unsure of the identification marks on the notes. The lack of lower denomination notes is a major reason why the new notes are not being circulated much.
Assuming that fake notes are an eventuality when it comes to a nation’s currency, the Reserve Bank of India has released a few guidelines to distinguish the new 2000 note.
Here are 17 identification marks found on the new Rs 2000 note:
