Good try. Unfortunately your ans. is wrong. Its solution is as given below:
See, there are 3 people over here. The loss faced by the shopkeeper is equal to the profit earned by the lady & the other shopkeeper, from whom he had got the change of Rs. 1000/-
1)      The lady got goods worth Rs. 200/- & Rs. 800/- as change. So, total profit of the lady= Rs. 1000/-
2)      Now, the shopkeeper had taken change of Rs. 1000/- by giving duplicate 1000 rs note from other shopkeeper. Later he returned Rs. 1000/-   So, profit earned by other shopkeeper is zero.
Hence, total loss= Rs. 1000/-    ........(from 1 & 2)
