→ What Is Global Positioning System or GPS?

♦ The Global Positioning System (GPS), also known as Navstar GPS or simply Navstar, is a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) that provides geolocation and time information to a GPS receiver in all weather conditions, anywhere on or near the Earth where there is an unobstructed line of sight to four or more GPS satellites. The GPS system operates independently of any telephonic or internet reception, though these technologies can enhance the usefulness of the GPS positioning information. The GPS system provides critical positioning capabilities to military, civil, and commercial users around the world. The United States government created the system, maintains it, and makes it freely accessible to anyone with a GPS receiver. However, the US government can selectively deny access to the system, as happened to the Indian military in 1999 during the Kargil War. [Read More | Source - Wikipedia]

→ How to exchange my old 500 and 100 notes ??

♦ You have to go to your nearest bank or post office (may hardly available) with your Aadhaar Card and its xerox copy.
♦ Ask the bank staffs that you want to exchange your old notes.
♦ They will give you a form which you have to fill up.
♦ Now just give them the form, they will ask for your Aadhaar card, share it and then your money.
♦ If you have more than Rs. 2000/- then you may ask to give atleast one new Rs. 2000/- note, so that you can experience the new note.  :P

♦ Off course not, papers cannot be water proof. But this note is made up of paper with a little amount of wax, and hence if it gets wet then not to worry it will get dry very fast than the old notes.

→ Is this note is really having NANO GPS chip ??

♦ NO. This new notes don't have any Nano GPS technology Chip. A GPS needs a minimum eclectrical power and
an internet connection to transmit its data with the satellite. And none of them is available in the new notes. Even an internet connection gets lost when the mobile goes under water. :D
