today , after lunch i went to have buttermilk . when i took out 10rs coin to pay to shop keeper, he denied .
shopkeeper: “sir , we dont accept 10 rs coin. please give us note .“,
me:”huh?? why? whats the problem with this coin?”
s:”Sir, its banned by government , dont you know ?”
m: “boss, who told you this ?”
s:”sir you can see Facebook or whatsapp messages, i can show you”
(shows some posts and images which was circulated in his group..)
me:”did PM announce this ? did RBI announce this ? did finance minister announce this ?”
another colleague of shopkeeper:” sir please give note sir , we are receiving counterfeit coins “
me:”this is genuine man , also i donot have change, i only have 500 rs note .”
s:”ok give me”
i gave him 500 rs note and he handed over 490 rs balance to me .
i wonder how ill-informed are people who believe in some fake posts on facebook and whatsapp ..
below is the original circular by RBI(Reserve Bank of India)
PS:please click on image or zoom to see the above circular more clearly
my sincere advice is to people in india , not to believe in Facebook and whatsapp forward messages and post blindly .. refer different genuine sources and then decide.
if my understanding wrong, kindly throw some light on this so that i can know the reality better .
Question of the day :
Have you been in similar situation where anyone has denied to accept 10rs note ?
