Fake news Rs 10 Coin circulation, Reserve Bank of India says valid


Reserve Bank of India, Rs 10 Coin: There has been an increase of people not accepting the Rs 10 coins. To remove this confusion the reserve Bank of India reiterated that there was no ban on Rs 10 coins and the coins are valid

There was yet another rumor of fake Rs 10 coin in circulation two months back, then the Reserve Bank of India RBI had asked people not to give importance to such news and continue to accept these coins as legal tender in all their transactions without any hesitation.

It has been reported that some person’s having less knowledge who suspected the genuineness of such coins created the doubts in the minds of ordinary people including traders, shopkeepers, etc, delaying the circulation of these coins in certain parts of the country causing avoidable confusion, RBI said in a statement.

The central Bank has advised the public not to give importance to such ill informed information and ignore them and continue to accept these Rs 10 coins as legal tender in all their transactions without any hesitation.

As per the RBI as Rs 10 coins remained in circulation for longer periods, there are possibility that some of the coins of different designs and even shapes are circulating at the same time. One of such change is re-introduction of Rupee symbol in coins in July 2011.

An instance of this is the Rs 10 coin with rupee symbol and the same denomination coin without RS symbol, Both of them are legal tender and equally good for transactions, though they may look a little different.
