MP: ATM produces Rs. 500 notes without Gandhi’s image

'No Cash' boards on ATMs are back for residents in several parts of Hyderabad. The top sufferers are the people with medical emergency. The three-day holiday for banks combined with the one-day strike call by bank employees' unions have ensured that several ATMs in the city have run out of cash.

Morena MP: Yet another case of Mahatma Gandhi’s image missing from new currency notes came to light, as a man hailing in Madhya Pradesh’s Morena district received illegal tender when he withdrew money from an ATM.

The latest victim is Gowardhan Sharma, who received the counterfeit Rs 500 notes from an SBI ATM.

A bewildered Sharma when to the security guard and showed him the notes. Then he called up on the phone numbers available at the ATM.

The State Bank of India officials assured later that the notes are good but probably there was printing mistake. It said that they would be replaced after being sent to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI).

Earlier on April 25, a resident of Sheopur had received a Rs 2000 note from which Gandhiji’s image was missing. (ANI)
