What would you do if you came across such a torn note? Today we are going to tell you the guidelines of Reserve Bank of India regarding torn notes. Along with this, we will also tell you how such notes can be changed.
This is the rule of RBI
According to the rules of RBI, you can easily get the old or pasted notes exchanged by going to the bank. The rule says that banks cannot refuse to accept those notes. Just such notes should not be fake. If any bank refuses to take notes, then you can complain to RBI, after which action can be taken against that bank.
Torn notes can be changed in any bank
RBI’s rule says that even if the notes are torn into several pieces, they can be used. Even if any part of the torn note is missing, it can be replaced. Normal mutilated notes can be exchanged at any of the bank branch counters or at any RBI office. For this you do not need to fill any form.
The full value of the torn note will not be available.
If there are normal mutilated notes, then you get full money in exchange for them, whereas if the note is more torn then you will get back only a percentage of the value of the note.
