A picture of 1000 rupees note is going viral on the internet. It has first started on Twitter and then is being shared on Facebook and Whatsapp. People are still in a dilemma if this is real or fake. The new note almost resembles the new 2000 note. However, it is not confirmed if this is just a hoax.
However, the RBI has not made official intimations with respect to circulating Rs 2,000 currency notes.
Rumour mills are intensively abuzz with reports hinting at the release of Rs 2,000 currency notes in February 2017. At this juncture, it is worth noting that Security Printing and Minting Corporation of India (SPMCIL) has the responsibility of printing currency notes and issuing coins.
