After a Delhi SBI ATM dispensed a ‘churan label’ Rs 2000 note by the ‘Children’s Bank of India’, there are now reports of an SBI ATM in Uttar Pradesh dispensing a scanned copy of one. Yes, you read it right. Three months into demonetisation, these reports are definitely shocking.
Arvind Gupta, who is a jeweller by profession, withdrew Rs 10000 from an SBI ATM in Shahjahanpur in UP. He got five Rs 2000 notes, and one of them clearly was a fake one. According to a report by TOI, one note with serial no 5 DN 029593 was clearly fake. Gupta looked at the note holding it up to the light and said that it was a scanned copy of the genuine note.
The bank next to the ATM was closed but there was still some staff inside, therefore Gupta went inside the bank to complain about the bank, but the staff asked him to come back on Monday, after denying that the fake note was taken out from the SBI ATM.
However, he refused to leave and called other locals and customers as well in the area to stage a protest. He has also filed a complaint to the Sub-Divisional Magistrate of Jalalabad and the station officer of Jalalabad Police Station.
So, what do you have to say Mr Modi?
