"Only the side with Mahatma Gandhi's image was printed. The other side was blank," Soni told TOI.

He immediately reported the matter to the bank, which replaced the notes. SBI's Khargone currency chest in-charge PS Panwar told TOI, “Around four misprinted currency notes with one side blank were received and replaced. We tried to ensure that the customers didn't face any trouble.” He also said that the matter has been reported to the RBI.
