New 1,000 Rupee Note VIRAL on Social Media : FAKE or REAL ?


On November 8, 2016, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the demonetisation of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes and soon introduced new Rs. 500 and Rs. 2000 notes.

Amid confusion, people have been sharing lots of news related to demonetisation and new currency notes, etc on social media – particularly WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Recently images of New 1000 Rupee Notes have emerged on social media, and they have started going viral.

Everybody is getting images and videos of the New Thousand Rupee Notes on either Facebook, Twitter or WhatsApp and this is creating lots of confusion to common man.

An image showing a brand new Rs 2000 note had leaked on social media, at least a week before Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the demonetisation of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,000 notes, and that Rs. 2000 note viral message proved to be TRUE ….

Many believe that this Rs. 1000 new note will also prove to be true, however many consider it to be fake.

Some people are asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and RBI on Twitter if this is how the new 1000 rupee note will look.

Looking at the picture it is difficult to say whether the new 1000 rupee note is genuine or has been photo-shopped.

Incidentally, the Finance Ministry had earlier denied plans to introduce new Rs 1000 notes. A source in the ministry, who we contacted to confirm if the image of the new thousand rupee note was real, chose not to comment.

Having said that, if the government is indeed planning to introduce a new Rs 1000 note, its likely that we will have to wait for an official announcement from the centre. Before that happens, it will be really difficult to say whether the new Rs. 1000 note is real or fake.

With banks and ATMs running out of cash, many people across the country have been expressing their inconvenience in running the day-to-day lives.
