SILCHAR�Aug 20 - At�a time when the traders and public have been rejecting�coins of Rs10 following rumors that�the coins were invalid and, fake coins are in circulation, the Cachar District administration has taken a tough stance to dispel the anecdote.
�In a recently held meeting among the Cachar District administration, banks , traders and Cachar Police it was decided that those refusing to accept 10 rupee coins could end up facing legal action.��The bankers in the meeting opined that people should not hesitate in using the coins for transactions as these coins are legal tender.
��The 10 rupee coins are absolutely valid and there is no reason to reject the coins. However, strict legal action will be taken if anyone is found to refuse the coins. Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) SK Das has been assigned as the in-charge officer to monitor the issue with priority,� said Cachar Deputy Commissioner S Vishwanthan.
�On the other hand, DSP (Headquarters) SK Das informed that some verbal complaints have been reported so far. �We have asked the complainants to register their grievances with a witness at respective police outposts across the district,� Das maintained.
