RBI has released images and features of the new 500 rupees and 2000 rupees notes, but even before PM Modi's big announcements on Tuesday, there were messages going around on WhatsApp talking about the new 2000 rupees note having a 'nano GPS chip' - aka NGC - that can be used to track the notes from anywhere.
