Fake Note Currency Printing in Bangladesh

Fact Check:

A video in heavy circulation online alleges to show the printing of fake Indian currency notes in a note factory in Bangladesh. In the video, you can rather see a man arranging piles of 200 and 50-rupee notes, and around him are a group of printing machines in a room. The video does give the impression of fake currency printing, but as such, the fake note factory claim in Bangladesh is not true.

Not Fake Note Factory in Bangladesh

In late December 2017, as reported by Indiatoday website indiatoday.intoday.in, two men were arrested by Police for running a counterfeit Indian currency factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Notably, there were also reports about fake notes printing in Bangladesh. In that scenario, the video gained popularity and viewers went on to believe it easily. The fact of the matter, however, is what you see in the video are not real currency notes.

A close look at the notes will reveal the print of “Bhartiya Children Bank” (in Hindi language), and ’50’ and ‘200’ coupon print without the rupee symbol, unlike what you see in real notes. In reality, these newly introduced note replicas are actually meant for Children; for playing game. They are available for sale in toy shops and others. Notably, similar other notes that appeared earlier had prints of ‘Children Bank of India’ and ‘Bharatiya Manoranjan Bank’ (Manoranjan in Hindi means Entertainment).

So, the claim that the video shows a fake note factory in Bangladesh is a hoax.
