The new Rs 2,000 currency notes seem to have been making news for all the wrong reasons, instead of the right ones. Sure, once the notes came into circulation in ‘post-demonetisation’ India, there were whoops of joy in every other part of the country, but after videos of leaking notes and bleeding notes and misprinted notes went viral – one after another – they’ve become a more frequent cause of amusement than anything else.

Despite this being projected as a much advanced version of a currency note, there have been several instances of ATMs dispensing fake Rs 2,000 notes already that have been reported by the media. And we’re not even talking about the purses and wallets that have hit street vendors.

The most recent case of that being a Hindustan Times report of a State Bank of India ATM in south Delhi’s Sangam Vihar dispensing fake Rs 2,000 notes with some hilarious errors. The notes, which on first glance would seem genuine, read ‘Children Bank of India’ instead of Reserve Bank of India and ‘Guaranteed by the Children’s Government’ in place of Guaranteed by the Central Government. According to Hindustan Times, among other errors, the latent image on the note is replaced by the words ‘Churan lable’ and a fake ‘PK’ logo is in place instead of the central bank’s seal.

As soon as the report hit the online space, the ever-ready Twitterati were quick to see the humour in the not-so-fine print. From rehashing Reverse Bank of India jokes to punning on the possible ‘governor of the Children’s Bank of India’, there were enough puntended tweets flooding the microblogging site as ‘Children’s Bank of India’ trended across the country.

Sample some of the wittiest here.
