1. Rs 5 note
The first thing we noticed in the picture that the five rupee note reads, ‘pachas rupiya (fifty rupees)‘ while it read Rs 5 in numerical.
2. Rs 350 note
When we checked the website of the RBI, we found that the currency notes of Rs 350 are not in circulation and was never released.

On putting the image through Reverse Image Search, a commemorative Rs 100 coin was released by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in memory of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 2018.
