Fake currency notes circulation is still a problem

Following the 2016 demonetisation, where the main goal was to abolish currency counterfeiting, the circulation of fake Indian currency notes (FICN) in the nation is still a concern.

The National Crime Control Bureau (NCRB) reported that since 2016 when the government demonetized the 1,000- and 500-rupee notes, FICN with a face value of 245.33 crores had been confiscated by law enforcement authorities all around the country.

In the 2021–22 fiscal year, the volume of counterfeit 500-rupee notes discovered by the banking system greater than doubled to 79,669 pieces, as reported by the RBI annual report, which was released in May 2022.
