The request issued by the Central bank said, “The application should be able to identify the denomination of legal tender banknotes of Mahatma Gandhi Series and Mahatma Gandhi (New) series by capturing the image of the notes placed in front of the mobile camera or scrolled across it”.
It also said, “the mobile application should be searchable via voice option in all app stores, it said, “The mobile application should be able to identify the banknote denomination in 2 seconds or less”.
Basically, RBI wants a full-fledged working application that would contain the following features:
- Should be able to identify the legal Mahatma Gandhi notes and new Mahatma Gandhi notes when the camera is even hurled in front of it.
- The application should be searchable via voice in all kinds of app stores.
- The identification should be done in 2 seconds or less.
