SBP is making a documentary, comprising of various strategies that people can use to detect whether the notes are authentic or fake.

For the completion of this project, it has also hired security experts and mobile app developers to develop a mobile app that can help people to identify counterfeit notes via their phone camera. This app is expected to be released once its tested in detail.

SBP hopes that their app can pinpoint the authentic notes which have a host of special security features.

In order to provide more security to the public, SBP is looking to introduce and incorporate hologram and other specialized security measures in future currency notes.

It is an expensive attempt and SBP officials are still trying to get these advanced security features.
