Rs. 2000 Note With RFID or GPS Tag?

The Indian Government is all set to introduce new currency notes. What I've been hearing over multiple social channels and WhatsApp is that the new Rs. 2000 notes will have a GPS or RFID tag that won't require an active power source.

I've been trying to verify the truth and wondering if it's possible to include a chip inside a currency note. Can someone help clarify this?

Perhaps, they've got a secret RFID chip in there? 😉

I don't think so. And specially to track the location of the chips isn't looking like practical to me right now and especially at this level. 😀

I'm not sure what'd be the motive behind introducing Rs. 2000 notes. While the current currency initiative will unearth the existing black money, new hoarding will start once the new notes are introduced in circulation. Would appreciate if someone can throw more light on this.

It's simply not possible with the current available technology. It's a hoax.
A GPS receiver cannot be a passive device. And a passive rfid isn't helpful either. Even with the highest power transmitter, it'll be not be possible to get it to any use due to cash being hidden away much deeper than penetration of transmitter.

if there os any technology like this, it would great.
but currently for phone GPS we need to come to open space for accuracy.
Don't know how IRNSS may work. And maybe been regional navigation system, it has higher penetration.

I check the 2000/- currency visually but can't see it. Can you guys guide for how to check the location of RFID tag? Is there any kind of scanner available?

I have learned that there are major two security feature Eurion pattern and Counterfeit deterrence system.
It won't let u to print of scan original bank,note or if u try edit,on software it wont be possible.
These two features are also available on Indian 50,100 and old 500,1000 notes. And also in majority foreign currencies.

Rest few marks ln notes are given to identify.

But there is no Nano, micro chip for navigation or trace..
