This hundred rupee note, without the number at the top, was brought to The Tribune office here on Monday by Mr I.K. Miglani, Branch Manager of the State Bank of India, Haryana Civil Secretariat branch. It bears the number--6 UN 472347--at the lower left end without any number at the top right hand end. Only the "code"--E-- is there at the top right hand side. Interestingly, the figure 4 appears on the back side of the note, obviously a misprint.
