Have you notice the possible printing error on the new Rs 2,000 note? As reported in the Hindi website, Satyagraha, the back side of the Rs 2,000 note has a possible typo!
As reported in Scroll and TheQuint, if you notice carefully there are two places where "Don Hazaar Rupaiya" is written in Devanagari script. "Don Hazaar Rupaiya" is Marathi for two thousand rupees apparently, so the first time it appears correctly.
However, in any note, Marathi is preceded by the value written in Konkani. Which in the case of the new Rs. 2000 note is written as "Don Hazaar Rupaiye" as well. Two thousand rupees in Konkani is written as "Doni Hazaar Rupaiye."
Two Weeks = "Doni Vaaru" in Konkani. However there are conflicting version that it can be "Don Vaaru" too. If that's the case, there's nothing to worry about and one can consider the Rs 2000 as valid and without any error.
The "Do Hazaar Rupaye" written vertically towards the left is correctly spelled in Hindi.
So after all the long queues and exhausting wait, if it turns out to be an error, RBI must withdraw all Rs 2,000 notes which is already being circulated. Citizens specially the lower income group across the country are already seen abusing our PM Modi in various videos due to the great inconvenience brought upon by this decision and any withdrawal of the new notes may most likely spark further panic and further complicate the demonetisation process.
I really have no words to say. I hope I'm wrong. I hope Scroll and TheQuint is wrong too and so are the thousands of twitter users who pointed out the error. We are in one hell of a ride if this is indeed an error.
Will update as and when there's update from RBI. Do share your feedback in the comments below.
