Congress and AAP Social Media supporters gang up again to spread panic about new currency notes

As expected, ever since the 8th November demonetisation move kicked in, the usual suspects are having sleepless nights. The list of hoaxes around the demonetisation scheme haven’t stopped coming in as the anti Modi brigade queues up to cash in on the uncertainty after the move.

The photoshop machines have been working over time printing new hoaxes faster than RBI can print new currency notes forcing OpIndia.com to dispel those rumours at the same rate .

The latest mob attack being on the new currency notes. The mobsters after having tried all ways possible to discredit the humble currency notes have now moved on to play the time tested, hardest to dispel, photoshopping routine for their propaganda.

In the latest trick to confuse and paralyse masses, photoshopped images of the new currency is being circulated. Some of these pictures are of the Rs 500 notes where they claim they received new notes from ATM which are only half printed while others claim they got Rs 2000 notes which were misprinted.

Just days before this, a hoax of an incorrect Hindi language print on the Rs 2000 note was made viral by the same group, with suggestion that the Rs 2000 note was printed in hurry and that demonetisation should be rolled back because the Government and RBI are ill prepared.

After all the hoaxes being busted on this site alone, the latest attempt was hundreds of Congress and AAP affiliated handles suddenly claiming to have withdrawn washed off Rs 500 notes. Here are two such geniuses:

This chap has already deleted his tweets which were retweeted over 1000 times and has now moved on to the next hoax which is already debunked (note the hashtag):

Two more tweets claiming the 500 note half printed, one of them mentioning it’s a Whatsapp forward. These were deleted later too:

There is no proof that these notes actually exist other than the deleted tweets based on Whatsapp forwards. The notes clearly look badly photoshoped. The other rumour being spread is that the Rs 2000 notes having a lot of mis-prints with hundreds of handles tweeting about it.

It’ll be hard to say with 100% surety if these are fake or real. But considering how hard the rumour mills are working (look at some other rumours like SBI waves off Mallya loan, Kejriwal passes thief’s suicide as innocent citizen committing suicide because of demonetisation and top 10 rumours about demonetisation) it will be foolish to not wait till facts are clear.

Some error rate in currency printing is but natural and banks replace these notes. RBI has made errors before and has come forward and issued clarifications earlier. But for now this remains unconfirmed too

Meanwhile the assault on the new currency continues unabated with you-tubers making them pass through stress tests usually reserved for nuclear bunkers and it looks they are holding up nicely, you can relax and appreciate the crispiness of your new notes.
