FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above viral post and found the claim and the images to be fake.

  1. There is no notification regarding the introduction of Rs 1,000 notes on RBI’s official website.

2. When we zoom-in, on the top right corner of the image, one can see ‘Artistic Imagination’ written on the note, indicating that it was not the official currency.

3. A note of any denomination bears a signature of the RBI governor. Though there is a signature on the image, it reads MK Gandhi.

Hence, the images claiming that RBI has issued a new Rs 1,000 note are false.

The story will be updated once we receive a response from RBI.
