Citizens demand action against fake currency notes


The citizens, particularly business circles, have expressed grave concern over circulation of fake currency notes in the markets, saying even the currency notes drawn from banks are fake.
“I purchased some commodities from Bank Road Saddar and gave a currency note of Rs 1,000 to the shopkeeper returned Rs 610 to me. When I went to another shop to buy some other commodity, the shopkeeper refused to take the currency note of Rs 500, declaring it fake.
I went back to the first shopkeeper who also refused to own it. This way I had to suffer loss of Rs 500, said Aslam Khan, a woman school teacher.
This menace is on the rise particularly in rural areas where illiterate people cannot differentiate between fake and original notes.
The citizens have demanded of the government and State Bank of Pakistan to take notice of the matter and ensure implementation of relevant laws on this count.


  1. Dear sir,
    I have recently fallen victim to becoming the (Unfortunate) recipient of a fake
    Rs. 1000/-(New note). As an honest citizen I need to know, whom to report the matter to, for the benefit of the people(Including myself) and government of Pakistan.

    Most hopeful for recovery of the loss.
