Banks will accept scribbled notes: RBI

By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, Dec 31 � Banks will continue to accept currency notes with scribbling, the Reserve Bank said today, dismissing rumours that it has stopped banks from accepting such notes from tomorrow, reports PTI

�In the wake of rumours circulating in the market that from January 1, 2014, banks will not accept bank notes with anything written on them, the RBI has urged members of the public not to fall prey to such rumours and to use their bank notes without any fear,� RBI said in a notification.

RBI said it has not issued any such instructions.

However, it reiterated that writing or scribbling on bank notes works against its �clean note policy� and sought cooperation from public, institutions and others in keeping the bank notes clean by not writing anything on them.
