RBI: Banks to continue accepting scribbled notes
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) stated that banks will continue to accept currency notes with anything written on them and it has not issued any such instructions regarding discontinuity of scribed notes.
Nevertheless, the central bank reiterated that writing or scribbling on banknotes works against its ‘clean note policy’ and sought co-operation from public, institutions and others in keeping the banknotes clean by not writing anything on them.
Note: This announcement came on the wake of rumours that RBI issued a notification that from January 1, 2014, banks will not accept bank notes with scribbling.
