Over a decade, Indian market is flooded with fake currency. But in last couple of years, there seems to be an increase in the inflow of fake currency from neighboring countries and now currency notes are closer you than you think. Check your wallet, here are some tips on detecting fake Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.

Double Click Images to Enlage



ON THE OBVERSE (FRONT)
1. See through registration
In the Middle of the vertical band at the extreme left is the denominational numeral ("500" in Rs 500 and "1000" in Rs 1000) printed as a floral design. One half of this numeral is printed on the obverse and the other half in reverse in such a way that the two printed portions have a perfectly accurate back-to-back registration and the numeral appears as one when viewed against light.

2. Identification Mark
A circle (Rs 500 note) and diamond (Rs 1000 note) with intaglio print, which can be felt by touch, helps visually impaired to identify the denomination.

3. Watermark
A portrait of Mahatma Gandhi, multi-directional lines and an electrolyte mark showing the denominational numeral ("500" in Rs 500 note and "1000" in Rs 1000 note) appear in this section and can be viewed better when the note is held against light.

4. Optically variable ink
The colour of the numeral in the centre {"500" in Rs 500 note and "1000" in Rs 1000 note) appears green when the note is held flat but changes to blue when it is held at an angle.

5. Intaglio Printing
A portrait of Mahatma Gandhi and the seal of Reserve Bank of India at the extreme right, the 'guarantee' and 'promise' clauses in the middle, the emblem of the Ashoka Pillar at the bottom left, the signature of the Governor of Reserve Bank of India below 'promise' clause and the identication mark for the visually impaired persons are all printed in intaglio and can be felt by touch.

6. Micro-lettering
The letters "RBI" and the numeral "500" (in Rs 500 note) and "1000" (in Rs 1000 note) can be viewed with the help of magnifying glass in the area between the Mahatma Gandhi portrait and the vertical band at the right.

7. Latent Image
The vertical band above the seal of the Reserve Bank of India contains a latent image of the numeral "500" (in Rs 500 note) and "1000" (in Rs 1000 note) when the note is held horizontally at eye-level.

8. Security Thread
A vertical, 3-mm-wide, security with the inscriptions ("भारत" and "RBI" in Rs 500 note and "भारत", "RBI" and "1000" in Rs 1000 note) changes colour from green to blue when viewed from different angles. It will glow yellow on the reverse (back) and the next text will glow yellow on the obverse (front) under ultraviolet light. On the reverse, the thread is visible as an unbroken line when the note is held up against light.
