No kid­ding: ATM in Delhi spews out ‘Chil­dren Bank’ `2,000 notes

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE - Shiv Sunny shiv.sunny@hin­dus­tan­times.com

A State Bank of In­dia ATM in south Delhi’s Sangam Vi­har dis­pensed fake Rs 2,000 notes, which ap­peared gen­uine at first glance but a closer look re­vealed a wealth of de­lib­er­ate er­rors that sug­gested the hand of a hope­less prank.

A cus­tomer care ex­ec­u­tive of a call cen­tre in Ch­hatarpur be­came the prankster’s vic­tim when he with­drew `8,000 — in de­nom­i­na­tions of 2,000 — from the SBI ATM on Fe­bru­ary 6 and found to his hor­ror that four bills were is­sued by the “Chil­dren Bank of In­dia” and “Bharatiya Manoran­jan Bank”, not the RBI.
