Why its fake News:
The news that has been circulating in social media regarding circulation of fake 2000 rupee notes with 2AQ and 8AC series is considered as fake news. In 2009, RBI had issued a circular with same news but that was for 1000 rupee notes which was seized from 4 people from West Bengal and Jharkhand. After demonetization the 1000 rupee notes have been banned in the country and the same news has been circulated again by changing the 1000 rupee to 2000 rupee notes.
