According to the reports, the man had gone to the ATM to withdraw Rs 20,000 from his savings account. When he went to withdrew the money, he discovered that the ATM dispensed the misprint note because there were different colours on each side of it.
He later filed a complaint with the police and the bank officials.
Similarly, in February, ATM in Damoh district in Madhya Pradesh had dispensed new Rs 500 notes without serial numbers. SBI ATM was sealed after two residents of the district had withdrawn two Rs 500 notes each and none of the notes bore serial numbers.
However, the bank told the complainants that it was not possible to exchange the notes immediately, and those facing the issue have to file a complaint with the bank.
On February 22, South Delhi's Sangam Vihar SBI ATM dispensed fake Rs 2,000 notes which bore 'Children bank of India' instead of Reserve Bank of India and 'Guaranteed by the Children's Government' instead of Guaranteed by the Central Government.
It is to remind that the new currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 denominations were issued after the government announced demonetisation of higher value notes last November.
