Comments Interim issue after independence granted in 1947 notes were not issued until 01/04/1948 and were withdrawn from circulation starting 30/9/1948
being finally demonetized 01/01/1952

The G82 prefix of this note is out of the range quoted for the Pakistan issue: G/27-36 & G53-67 as mentioned in The Revised Standard Reference Guide to indian paper money (2012) by K Jhunjhunwalla & R Razack. Maybe this is an Indian issue after all! Further research is warranted.
