    A farmer from the village, Laxman Meena explained his experience saying that he withdrew Rs 6,000 and the cashier gave him three notes of Rs 2,000. Afterward, when he came back home, he checked the notes carefully and realized that the image of Mahatma Gandhi is missing from the note which can be seen on a normal note very evidently. So he concluded that it must be a bogus note and went back to return the note to the bank.

    To everyone’s surprise, it was found out that it wasn’t actually a fake note but just a printing error as told by the SBI branch manager RD Meena. Many similar cases started to show up in the area as that whole bundle was having similar notes. The bank has taken back all the notes.After PM Narendra Modi called for demonetization on the night of November 8, 2016. He scrapped the use of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes as a legal tender and introduced new notes of Rs 2000 and Rs 500. When the banks were flooded with the new notes and they started giving it to the public, many errors were discovered by the public.
