ATM Closed After Complaint Of Fake Rs 2000 Note


Sitamarhi: State Bank of India (SBI) officials in Bihar’s Sitamarhi district scrambled to seal an ATM after a customer complained that the bank ATM dispensed a fake Rs 2000 note on Sunday.

The matter came to light after one Pankaj Kumar attempted to use the new Rs 2000 currency note to buy groceries at a market in the Dumra area. Pankaj was told by a shopkeeper that his note was a scanned copy of an original. Bank officials declined comment but Pankaj said he was told by them that ATMs cannot dispense fake notes.
