Why do we add one to an amount gifted or donated?Members,
Whenever we offer some sum as a gift or donation to someone or any organisation, we have the practice of adding Rs.1/- to that sum. For e.g. Rs. 51/-, 101/-, 201/-, 301/-, 501/-, 1001/-, 10001/- etc
Why is it so? Why not we have the round figure ending with a zero? What is the logic behind it? What would happen if we write without the addition of one?
