Pakistan’s Machine Readable Currency Notes
Pakistan will soon replace its notes of all denominations with machine-readable currency to combat forgery and counterfeiting. Rs 20 notes had already been introduced in August last year with machine-readable technology. The ministry, through the State Bank of Pakistan, would ensure all currency notes were made with machine-readable security features this year. “The designs of all bank notes are being replaced with new ones after incorporation of latest state-of-the-art, machine-readable features as well as other necessary security features,” the minister maintained.
