Design of Rs. 75 circulating on social media platforms is fake : SBP

As expected State Bank of Pakistan clarifies in their tweet that the design circulating on various social media platforms is fake.

Proposed design of Rs. 75 Banknote

Following images of proposed design for the new Rs. 75 banknote to be issued on the 75th anniversary of Independence are making rounds on the social media. Legitimate or not, time will tell. In my opinion it's a working sample or a design by a graphic designer not the final design.

A new banknote of Rs. 75 on Pakistan’s 75th Independence Day

The State Bank of Pakistan plans to issue a new note of Rs 75 denomination to make the Platinum Jubilee celebrations of Pakistan’s Independence this year.

The federal government has authorized the design of new 75-rupees banknote to commemorate Pakistan’s Platinum Jubilee. The note will be printed on a local paper and will feature the anniversary dates of both Pakistan’s independence on 14 August 1947 and the founding of the State Bank of Pakistan on 1 July 1948.

Previously in 1997 a commemorative note of Rs. 5 was issued to mark the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Pakistan’s Independence.
