Not only the Rs 10 coin faced rejection in circulation but also the newly minted Rs 1 coin is facing unauthorized demonetization in some parts of the country as well. For rupee ten coin, RBI previously issued notice for it being the valid currency and warned people about facing legal action for rejecting such coins.
Upon interacting with the locals in Uttar Pradesh, it came to light that the main cause of the rejection of coins is it’s over circulation. People have said that the Chillar (change) is so much in quantity that the ones who have to count it the most like the grocery shop owners, wholesalers etc. keep on finding excuses to reject it.
