One often ends up with shampoo sachets, toffees, some shops even give credit notes, and so on. I keep wondering what happens to the coins? Where do they go? There is a storyon B’desh using coins for some other purposes, is it creating shortage?
Another problem is most shopkeepers do not accept 25 paise, 50 paise coins. Why should that be a case? I can understand if they are not legal tender, but they are. Then why the refusal? Something should be done to address these 2 problems.
