Default I want to know about a bangla word

Hello,

recently I talked to someone and uttered a word "Banoat". What does it mean? Is it a slang? I am pretty sure it is not a slang.

I think it means false. For example, ei kobor ta puropuri banoat.

If I get the actual word from the english, the the word I'm thinking is বানোয়াট, meaning falsified or made up, like a falisfied excuse for being absent.

Yes, Rubu is correct. It means made up, false info, forged info etc.

The one who makes false/fake stories/info. It is a soft slang.

I wouldn't say it refers to "someone", rather it is usually used as an adjective to a noun that holds some information:
বানোয়াট গল্প
বানোয়াট দলিল
বানোয়াট তথ্য
"এই কথাটা বানোয়াট"


But we cannot say:
"এই লোকটা বানোয়াট"
অথবা,
"এটা একটা বানোয়াট গাড়ী"


I also don't think it is soft slang. It might be insulting, but not slang.

ভুয়া is more common. And it applies to both objects and people.

Threre is a similar Hindhi sounding word ..not sure if they have the same root ..It is pronounced a little bit differently though ...

Banawat ...which means again "Made UP " /Not True ..

Anyway I learnt a Bengali word today ..Banoat

cheers
