GUIDELINES ON NOTE AUTHENTICATION AND FITNESS SORTING PARAMETERS
laid by Reserve Bank of India
(Ref: DCM(R&D)No.G-26/18.00.14/2009-10 dated May 11, 2010 from RBI&Bidder to
ensure the latest specification /parameter from RBI as on date)
Introduction
1.
A fit note is a note that is genuine, sufficiently clean to allow its denomination
to be readily ascertained and thus suitable for recycling. An unfit note is a note
that is not suitable for recycling because of its physical condition or belongs to
a series that has been phased out by Reserve Bank of India. All the fitness
parameters laid down in this document are to be evaluated individually. A note
must pass all the fitness parameters to be considered fit for recycling.
These parameters provide the minimum standards for cash handling machines
used by banks (hereinafter called ‘the machines’). Notes can only be recycled /
reissued if they are evaluated as genuine and fit according to these parameters.
Authenticity check is a prerequisite for fitness sorting. Fitness sorting can be
done only in case of genuine notes. The machines shall be able to identify and
separate suspected counterfeits and notes which are unfit for circulation in
terms of these standards in a reliable and consistent fashion.
The Reserve Bank of India phases out certain series (issue) of notes from
circulation from time to time. These notes, though considered legal RFP unless
otherwise specified, are unfit for recycling. As and when the Reserve Bank of
India decides to phase out a specific series (issue) of a specific denomination
of notes, the machines shall sort all the phased out notes as unfit, irrespective
of their physical condition.
Applicability
These parameters are applicable to machines operated by banks, either directly
by their staff or indirectly by their agents. These machines can be of any of the
following:
(i)
machines which check the authenticity and fitness of notes, i.e. note
processing machines / note sorting machines, and
(ii)
Machines which check only the authenticity of notes, i.e. note
authentication machines. All these machines shall classify the individual
notes as either genuine or suspect.

Authenticity Check
The machines shall perform authenticity check with reference to the features of
genuine notes as disclosed by the Reserve Bank of India from time to time. Any
note which is not found to be having all the features of a genuine note shall be
classified by the machine as suspect.

Soiling
Soiling refers to the general distribution of dirt across the entire note or in some
patterns. It is a measure of the loss of reflectivity from the unprinted areas due to dirt,
ageing (yellowing), wear and extraneous markings and includes decolourationdue to
ageing, excessive folding wear and other wearing. Soiling increases the optical
density and decreases the reflectance of the notes. Notes exceeding the soiling levels

Limpness
Limpness relates to structural deterioration or wear resulting in a marked lack of stiffness in
the note paper. Notes with a very low stiffness shall be sorted as unfit. Notes with very low
stiffness of paper, i.e. with paper which is worn out in circulation or mechanically mutilated
shall be sorted out as unfit. Detectors for paper quality shall be adapted to the same level as for
soiling.
Dog-Ears
Notes with dog-ears with an area of more than 130 mm² and a minimum length of the
smaller edge greater than 10 mm shall be sorted as unfit. Chipped notes shall also be
sorted as unfit.
Tears
Notes exhibiting at least one tear at the edge shall be classified as those having tears.
Notes with tears larger than those indicated in Table 3 shall be sorted as unfit.

Holes
This refers to notes with at least one visible hole. Notes with holes with area
exceeding 10 mm² shall be sorted as unfit.
Stains
Stains are visible markings which are not part of the feature of a note. Notes shall be detected as
unfit if localized - i.e. with limited extension – stain can be recognised on its surface. In case the
total area covered by stains exceeds 500 mm², the note shall be sorted as unfit. A note with a
single stain covering an area of more than 200 mm² shall be sorted as unfit. Both the obverse
and the reverse of the note shall be checked for stains.
Graffiti
Graffiti refers to deliberate graphic alteration of the note with for example, figures or letters.
Fitness sorting criteria in case of graffiti shall be the same as those for stains. Both the obverse
and the reverse of the note shall be checked for graffiti.
Crumples/ Folds
Crumpled / folded notes shall be sorted as unfit if the folds result in reduction of the
original note in length or width greater than 5 mm.
Decolouration
Notes affected by decolouration shall be sorted as unfit if the ink is partially or wholly
missing from its surface. Both the obverse and the reverse of the note shall be
checked for decolouration.

_________________________________________
A repaired note is created by joining parts of the same note together, for example, by using
extraneous matter such as tape, paper or glue. Notes with the following types of repairs shall be
sorted as unfit:
• Repairs covering an area greater than 100 mm²; or
• Thickness of the extraneous matter 50 μm or more; or
• Width of the extraneous matter 10 mm or more; or
• Length of the extraneous matter 10 mm or more.
Mutilated, Imperfect and Mismatched Notes
A mutilated note is note, of which a portion is missing or which is composed of more than two
pieces. An imperfect note is a note, which is wholly or partially, obliterated, shrunk, washed,
altered or indecipherable but does not include a mutilated note. A mismatched note is a note,
which has been formed by joining a half note of any one note to a half note of another note.
Such notes shall be classified as unfit.

TEST PROCEDURES
Machine shall not be disturbed/ tempered during the testing. No mechanic / Service
personnel shall be allowed to touch the machine once it has been handed over to the
Bank for technical testing.
•
Authenticity check
The machines shall check authenticity of notes with reference to the features of
genuine notes as disclosed by the Reserve Bank of India from time to time.
Test procedure: A known number of suspect notes, which do not have one or more of
the features of genuine notes and which are otherwise in good condition, shall be
mixed with about 2000 notes fit for circulation and shall be processed. The machine
should detect all the suspect notes.
The test should be repeated with at least two other denominations.
•
Speed Test:
Test procedure: A known number (N), not less than 2000, of used bank notes of a
particular denomination containing fit, soiled and reject notes shall be used for
testing. The time taken in seconds (T) to process the notes will be noted and speed
will be calculated using the formula, Speed (S) in notes per hour = 3600N/T. The test
should be repeated with at least two other denominations. The average speed of all
denominations shall be taken as the speed of the machine.
•
Consistency test
The test is carried out to check the consistency of the machine’s performance. The
notes used for speed test may be used for this test also.
Test procedure: A known number of suspect notes, which do not have one or more of
the features of genuine notes and which are otherwise in good condition, shall be
mixed with about 2000 notes fit for circulation and shall be processed. The machine
should detect all the suspect notes.
⇒ Stage 1: The notes are processed through the machine and the number of notes in
each output stacker (A, B, C etc) shall be noted and kept aside stacker-wise. If the
number of notes in any stacker is less than 100, additional notes shall be
processed so that there are at least 100 notes in any stacker.
⇒ Stage 2: The notes removed from stacker A are then processed through the
machine and the total number of notes in all other output stackers (excluding A)
shall be noted and expressed as a per cent of the number processed.
⇒ Stage 3: Test in stage 2 is repeated and result noted.

_________________________________________
⇒ Stage 4: The notes removed from stacker B in Stage 1 are then processed through
the machine and the total number of notes in all other output stackers (excluding
B) shall be noted and expressed as a per cent of the number processed.
⇒ Stage 5: Test in stage 4 is repeated and result noted.
The procedure is repeated with notes removed from all other stackers in stage 1 and
with other denominations.
The percentages calculated as above in all the stages shall not be more than 5%.
•
Fitness sorting
An unfit note is a note that is not suitable for recycling because of its physical
condition or belongs to a series that has been phased out by Reserve Bank of India. A
note must pass all the fitness parameters laid down by RBI to be considered fit for
recycling. Notes with any visual or physical defects are to be sorted as unfit as per
the criteria set out in Table 1 of the RBI guidelines.
Test procedure: For each of the parameter to be checked, at least 10 notes should be
selected in such a way that 5 notes have the defect within the permissible limit and 5
notes have the defect more than the permissible limit. For e.g., to check for holes, 5
notes should have a hole less than 10 mm 2 and 5 notes should have holes more than
10 mm2. These selected notes should have no other defect except the defect in the
parameter to be tested. These selected notes should then be mixed with at least 500
other notes and processed. The machine should correctly sort the 5 notes with defect
more than the permissible limit as unfit.
The test should be repeated for other parameters.
•
Stress Test
This test is conducted to check the suitability of the machine to work continuously for
long hours. The test shall be conducted under conditions similar to those that are
available in normal branches and currency chests.
Test procedure: The machine should be put to work continuously for 6 hours daily for
4 consecutive days. The machine may be given rest for 10 minutes after each hour of
working. During each hour, the machine should work continuously. Details of
stoppages or breakdown, if any, (number of occasions, time, time taken to restart,
nature of break down etc) and other defects or abnormal behavior etc noticed during
the test should be carefully recorded.
