We have a pack of 10 ruppee coins that small shops and push cart vendors are not accepting. Their fear is that it is not going to be accepted by others from their hands. I can understand their concerns, the deal with small volume of money. If the coins are rejected, it is a waster of money for them. At least we can pay it into a bank saving account etc, most of the poor vendors would not have an account. I still think the Government has to do a lot in terms of re-assuring the small vendors and sellers clarifying that all types are valid. This should be done regularly in print, radio and TV media forms. More importantly, if I were in RBI for this issue, I would issue a statement ' Nationalized banks will accept these 10 rupee coins from any vendor or trader or common man who finds it difficult to transact such coins'. This would reassure them, we may need a currency notes for a short while to fill in the gap.
