Soon after reports emerged that Rs 2000 currency notes would be introduced by RBI, another set of rumors emerged that these notes would be embedded with nano-GPS chips which can be traced all over the world.The Hindu published the first available report of Rs 2000 currency being printed, and about to be launched by RBI.

As per their report, currency printing press in Mysuru has already printed the first lot, and it has been dispatched to RBI headquarters for country-wide distribution.
Soon, this report by picked by social media, and images of the new Rs 2000 currency notes started to circulate. Soon, Twitter was abuzz with images of these notes – a unique shade of pink and white with a new design.
It also spread like wild fire among WhatsApp users – everyone was circulating the Rs. 2000 currency note images. Interestingly, it is not just one image, but a number of different ones have been circulating on Social Media as well as Instant messengers.
