As a part of its campaign “Rupay ko Pehchano”, the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has launched Videos and Smartphone Application on security features of currency notes to combat counterfeiting. The videos and Smartphone application are aimed at:
- Enhancing the security features of Pakistani currency notes to make counterfeiting even more difficult, and
- Creating awareness amongst general public about security features of the currency notes to help them differentiate between genuine and fake notes.
A total of 5 videos have been developed, one each for Rs.5000, Rs. 1000 and Rs. 500 notes, one for Rs. 100 and below and the fifth highlights the security features of all the currency notes in circulation. All those videos can be watched by clicking: State Bank of Pakistan (Security Features of Currency Notes).
The app, “Pakistani Banknotes”, contains information about Pakistani currency notes in English as well as in Urdu language. It is available on Google Play and iTunes.
