New Delhi: Some post- offices are being used for depositing fake currency notes as most of the banks have installed machines to detect such notes. One such post-office which has come to light is located in Noida which is part of the national capital region.

Small post-offices or post-offices in remote areas are being used for the purpose. The detection is made only when these currency notes reach the head-office. The same is true in Noida case .

Counterfeit notes of the value of Rs 500 and 1000 ( totalling Rs 11,000) were deposited in Dankaur post-office on Saturday. These notes were found fake when examined by the head post-office at Bulandshahr by a machine installed there for the purpose.

The head-office, however, held the head-master guilty and asked him to deposit genuine notes of the same total from his pocket. The plea given by the post-master was that the sub-post office was not accepting banned notes in absence of the machine,.

It changed the practice after peoples’ agitation and threat of vandalising the post-office.
