The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has launched a mobile app- Mobile Aided Note Identifier (MANI) to help visually-impaired people to identify the denomination of currency notes.
- There were reports of problems faced by visually-challenged people in identifying new currency notes launched after demonetisation (2016).
- The application can scan the currency notes using the camera of the mobile phone. However, the app does not authenticate a note as either genuine or counterfeit.
- It also gives audio output in Hindi and English.
- The application will work on Android and iOS operating systems. It will work in offline mode once installed.
