After Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s demonetisation move, the country has gone into frenzy and people are coming up with bizarre ways to move their money and also finding notorious ways to manage cash flow in their daily lives. According to a Times of India report, four students from Madhya Pradesh’s Shajapur photocopied the new Rs 2,000 note, used it in a local confectionery to buy items worth Rs 200 and managed to get away with Rs 1,800 in their hand.

Reportedly, the children were on their way to school at 6am on November 17 when they entered a milk parlour owned by Gopalkrishna Yadav. They bought milk for Rs 200 and handed him Rs 2,000 note which he happily accepted and returned the remaining change to them. He suspected the note’s authenticity in the afternoon and discussed the same with his son. The two, reportedly, visited the national bank’s branch and upon asking if the note is real, they got the shock of their lives. The bank officials told them the note is a coloured photocopy of the original currency.

Yadav, reportedly, lodged a complaint with the police but it seems difficult to find the culprits. “We have taken up the matter for investigation. No case was registered as legally, one requires at least 5 fake currency notes to proceed with a case of counterfeiting,” Shajapur Kotwali police station in-charge Rajendra Verma told TOI.

                Photocopy? Who's fault is it? lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;When you get a new note, no matter what you at least hold it up against light! Photocopy would never have that. Don't tell me, q photocopy note can't be distinguished! I have seen people holding up against light for our old 500 and 1000 rupees! lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The topic should be " Careless shopkeeper accepts xerox of Rs 2000 note"
