KARACHI: The pictures of a commemorative Rs75 note have been circulating on social media, with users claiming that the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has finalised the design for it.

The claims were made here, here, and here.

However, this is not true. The central bank has not finalised any such design.

In a statement, the central bank clarified that the design circulating on various social media platforms regarding commemorative banknotes to be issued on the 75th independence day of Pakistan is fake.

Yes, the bank will indeed issue notes to mark the 75th independence day, according to the Finance Ministry, but the design has just not been finalised yet.
