At least two farmers in a remote village in Madhya Pradesh were given Rs 2000 currency notes that didn't have the image of Mahatma Gandhi. The incident took place in Sheopur district of Madhya Pradesh.
According to reports, the farmers received the apparent fake notes from a State Bank of India branch. The bank officials did not take back the notes from the farmers when they returned. The officials said that they are 'genuine' notes and also added that the missing Gandhi image was because of a 'printing error'.
