Even after releasing so many notifications by RBI regarding small 1 Rs. coins being legal tender, some shopkeepers, bus conductors and many others are still not accepting small 1 Rs. coins in Durgapur.
This problem of not accepting 1 Rs. coins can only be seen in Durgapur.
When they are asked the reason for not accepting the coins, they are stating that the reason for them to not accept the coins is that others are not accepting those small 1 Rs. coins from them.
1, 2, 5 & 10 Rs. Coins are Legal Tender.
Almost in every part of the City, Shopkeepers, Bus Conductors even in some government offices people are not accepting Coins. All these coins are Legal Tender and no such notifications has been released by the RBI about not using/accepting these coins.
Durgapur-Asansol police have also released several notices and posters to remove this confusion, but people are still not accepting small 1 Rs. coins.
People who are not accepting can be jailed for 3 years according to RBI Rules.
