However, the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) late Monday clarified that issuing new currency notes was not on the cards.

"Some fake news regarding new designs of currency notes is circulating on social media," the central bank said in a tweet.

"#SBP categorically denies the news and clarifies that no such proposal is under consideration at the moment," it added.
