 Detecting a fake note

                                                The state bank of Pakistan has made a clear cut view about detecting the fake currency notes in this respect the State bank has included some features in the notes by this way the normal person can also find out easily and have a diffrence between the fake and the original notes.These features are as under

1) Electrotype watermarks

2) Rainbow Printing

3) anti-scan areas

And there are some hidden features involve to it that makes it easier to judge between the fake and the original.


Some are the hidden features 

1) The paper

                    The paper that is used to made the currency note is the special one and there is a thread that is used in the notes it can not be pulled out of the paper at any time.

2) The watermark image 

                                     Quaid-E-Azam image has been shown on the right side of the note,it can be clearly seen under the light and the water image as well.

3) Ultravoilet detection

                                      Feature of the currency note when you pass a black or ultravoilet light over the currency note there comes a bluish light glowing from the note means the note is fake reject the note.

4) Checking of watermarks

                                             Watermark colour is found on the right side of the note from the front.something is also written in the note ca be found written easily.This type of watermarks are not printed on the paper but can be changed by the thickness of the paper.

4) The security thread

                                     There is security note in the currency note which can not be pulled out of the paper.The security thread shows a dark line and the word ' State bank of Pakistan ' is mentioned on the thread.

5) Optical Variable Ink 

                                     There is flage printed on the note with a crescent and a star on 500,1000 and 5000 currency notes.This is all printed by the OVI(optical variable ink )that changes colour from green to magenta and magenta to green,when it view from different angles.If the flage does not change its colour it means that the note is fake.


6) The printing colour 

                                    The ink that is used in it to print the note is very special that can not be swet or the note can be looked de-coloured.the fake note's ink always smudge's as the note wets even a small portion of it.
