2 The number panel of the notes are printed in fluorescent ink and are of standard size (if a number mentioned on the top right hand corner of the note varies in size, then it is a forged note).

3 The `micro-lettering' technology used in the printing of a note provides additional security to the notes against counterfeiting. Micro-printing like "RBI 100" is printed that can be seen using magnifying glass.

4 Braille Mark -- An identification mark has been introduced in the new series note for visually impaired people. This mark is in intaglio printing and it has different geometrical shapes for various denomination. For Rs 100 denomination, we have triangle as the identification mark.

Watch out, you may be holding a fake note.

It is well known that fake currency notes are in circulation in India. Terrorism is changing its face; It is prominently the starting of a new form of terrorism called 'economic terrorism'.. Our economy is hoped to reach the eight to nine per cent growth. But, what will happen to an economy, which is being flooded by fake currencies?

An estimate suggests that more than Rs 1,69,000 crores of fake currencies are in wide circulation in our country and out of which more than Rs 40 crores may be in Uttar Pradesh itself.

Recent acts of economic terror has been found in Abid, in Doomariaganj of UP where from a bank’s currency chest fake notes have been seized. Though quantum of currency note is officially seized is not more than Rs 5 lakh, the deadliest part of this seizure is its negative impact on India’s growing economy.

Apart from that the quality of papers, the quality of printing are of such a fine quality that it is not possible to differentiate between a genuine and a fake one. It also highlights the fact that advanced technology is being used to print such fake notes and the people who get a fake note by chance, do not know what to do with it.

If they take it to the bank, it cancels it and deposits it with the RBI, which means losing the money because if the bank starts compensating everyone who comes to them, then every Tom, Dick and Harry will approach bank with a fake note. There is no way banks can replace them and if people try to ‘use’ it in the market, it becomes a criminal offence.

And what if you take the fake note to the police? A police officer will simply lodge a daily diary report, specifying the note denomination and number.

Fake currency notes in circulation seem to have more than doubled when it comes to denominations of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 in the past three years. The government has attributed the high quality of fake currency notes to being sourced from mints in neighbouring states.

While the police have made a major breakthrough in unearthing the various fake currency note operators' racket and recovering such fake notes, the Reserve Bank of India has also launched an elucidation drive as the number of fake notes received by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), from various banks is increasing. The Reserve Bank of India has issued instructions to banks to ensure that counterfeit banknotes are not dispensed through ATMs, following complaints.
A good number of soiled and worn out notes received by the RBI are also found fake. The data revealed that the 100-rupee note is the most circulated when it comes to fake currency and the latest fake note circulated is 10 rupees note.

How to use a Hand held Metal detector

Operating a metal detector is simple. Once you turn the unit on, you move slowly over the area you wish to search. In most cases, you sweep the coil (search head) back and forth over the ground in front of you. When you pass it over a target object, an audible signal occurs. More advanced metal detectors provide displays that pinpoint the type of metal it has detected and how deep in the ground the target object is located.

How to make your home safer?

Posh areas of Delhi are considerably under spotlight. This time because of a increase in house robberies. According to Indian express article-

``There are three kinds of areas that are prone to robberies in Delhi,'' an officer at the Lajpat Nagar Police Station told Express Newsline. ``Places like Neeti Bagh and Gulmohar Park in South Delhi where the well-off live; places that are well-connected to the Ring Road as it is easy for the robbers to get away with the loot; And finally, places that are not well-lit.''

Commenting on the situation in northwest Delhi, DCP (north-west) Satyendra Garg says: ``It is a border district and therefore more prone to robberies. Investigations have revealed that most of these robberies have been committed either by novices or by gangs based in Haryana. Many of the robbers are dhobis or drivers: They are not starving, but think they will make a quick buck by robbing people.''

Statistics available at PHQ reveal that robberies have been the largest contributor to the 12 per cent increase in crime since the beginning of this year as compared to the whole of last year: 364 cases of robbery were reported till June 30.

While 46 cases were registered in June, at least 31 were registered during this months till yesterday.

The more important aspect is to educate oneself of the right security systems for your home. A security system has following components-

The input devices ( which trigger the alarm)
The output devices( which communicate the alarm like speakers)
The Control panel( networks between the devices and is a interaface for user)
