For this RBI recently launched a website “PaisaBoltaHai” which explains how you can detect fake currency notes. This is an excellent initiative which would help people to stay alert and detect a fake note before they take it from some one.
This website helps you to detect fake currency notes of Rs 10, Rs 20, Rs 50, Rs 100, Rs 500 & Rs 1000 denominations.
