The site also features documentary films and posters for various currency notes which can be downloaded and printed.

The link for this website is available on RBI’s main website as well.

The site also gives details of the number of fake currency notes detected.

RBI said considering there were 64,577 million pieces of banknotes in circulation as on March 31, 2011, the detection of forged notes during 2010-11 was to the tune of 6.74 pieces per million pieces of banknotes in circulation.

In the past as well, the Reserve Bank has come out with various notifications warning against circulation of counterfeit currency notes.

I am sure this website will be very helpful to all…
