Don't use currency notes for making garlands: RBI

Mumbai, Sep 11 (PTI) Making garlands of currency notes, a practice followed in Indian marriages and public rallies, has sought to be discouraged by the Reserve Bank.

"The Reserve Bank of India has appealed to members of public not to use banknotes for making garlands, decorating pandals and places of worship or for showering on personalities in social events, etc," an RBI release said today.

Such actions, it said, deface the banknotes and shorten their life.
