    New Delhi: Border Security Force, BSF, is in talks with Reserve Bank of India, RBI, for imparting of training to its troopers for identifying fake notes smuggled through Indo-Bangla border.

    Recently, consignments of counterfeit Rs 2,000 notes have been seized from the border by the security forces.

    The booming trade in fake Indian currency notes using the porous Indo-Bangla border especially in the Malda-Murshidabad district, was believed to have taken a hit after demonetisation of Rs 1000 and 500 notes.

    But alarm bells rang when counterfeit Rs 2,000 notes, which have replicated nearly 50-60 per cent of the security features, were seized.

    The central security agencies and police intercepted few consignments of Rs 2,000 notes between December 2016 and January from areas near Malda district.

    On 8th February, West Bengal Police arrested a youth with 40 fake Rs 2,000 currency notes from Murshidabad district, which is termed as the biggest such haul from the porous Indo-Bangla border region post demonetisation.
