Something went wrong in my adsense account yesterday. Since this is month end, I was checking whether payment got issued or not. And I was shocked & freezed for a while! My adsense account payment details showed conersion rate as 1 USD = 1 INR!! USD 497 after conversion should be somewhere around 22,000 INR, but it was showing INR 497!
Yesterday midnight I published this screenshot on Flickr which grabbed the attension of many, may be Google also. I got a mail from them after a couple of hours like this:

It looks like it’s getting displayed wrongly in my adsense control panel, but the check which is being sent should be having proper amount. Have to wait till the check comes to clarify.
While submitting this post to Digg, I found it’s not only me! Many other indian adsense publishers may be facing the same problem. Here is another blogger who is facing the same problem Http://blog.jalwaa.com/?p=97
