ten rupee coin
The mintmark is featured at the bottom on the obverse of the ₹10 coin. 
In July 2016, some shopkeepers in India were reported to be refusing to accept the ₹ 10 coin entirely, the result of a rumour circulating on social media.   It was initially claimed that coins with a 15 notch reverse design lacking the ‘₹’ symbol were fake, compared to the 10 notch version using the symbol introduced in 2011.
A local shop owner in Sitapur said, “I had started to take the coins from the public but soon after that all I received were the ten rupee coins only while no one wanted to receive the coin from my end. Some said it was fake or some said no one else accepts it.”
The rumours of fake Rs 10 coin in circulation started the rejection of this coin. While some parts of the country accept the coin other do not. The public is of the view that big shop owners and banks are responsible for the rejection of rupee ten coins.
