Pakistan major source of fake currency in India: Govt

Maximum consignments of high quality fake Indian currency notes are being supplied in the country from Pakistan, the Parliament was informed today.

"As per available inputs from central intelligence and investigation agencies, consignments of high quality Fake Indian Currency Notes (FICN) have been directly or indirectly sourced from Pakistan," Minister of State for Finance Namo Narain Meena said in a written reply to Rajya Sabha.

In response to another question about whether India has sought the help of the United States of America to tackle the menace of fake currency notes, he replied in the affirmative.

"Under the Indo-US Homeland security dialogue, counterfeit currency is one of the aspects for cooperation, covering exchange of knowledge, skill and intelligence," he said.
