Delhi ATM dispenses half-printed Rs. 2,000 note
An ATM in Delhi's Shaheen Bagh dispensed half-printed notes of Rs. 2,000, a local alleged. Shadab, a vegetable stall owner, approached bank authorities with the notes, following which police were alerted. Cops have now registered a case under IPC Section 420. Earlier this year, an ATM in Sangam Vihar dispensed fake Rs. 2,000 notes from the 'Children's Bank of India' and 'Bhartiya Manoranjan Bank'.
The incident happened on November 7. Shadab had left his stall and visited the ATM to withdraw some money. He got four Rs. 2,000 notes, police said, but one of them was half-printed; the other half was a white piece of paper. He then contacted bank officials and presented the note. The bank raised the issue with the police.
What to do if you get fake currency from ATM
If you get fake currency notes from an ATM, hold it up so that it gets recorded by the CCTV camera. Register a complaint with the ATM guard. Simultaneously, inform the bank and the police. Keep the ATM receipt safe; it might be required during investigation. Chances are, if you can prove fake currency was generated from an ATM, you will be compensated.
