The RBI Is Proposing Rs. 200 Notes. Here’s Why This Is A Problem-Solver

    While most of us are still reeling with the chaos that was demonetisation, the government seems to be still having fun. In a recent report, the RBI has approved a proposal to launch Rs. 200 currency notes. 

The notes, if these reports are to be believed (not tough considering the government’s school-going child-like excitement to get new stationery), will start getting printed after June this year. The RBI’s approval is now pending an official sign-off from the government. 

Of course, this is already getting slammed from all and sundry. But, we’re happy to look for the upside to everything. Here’s a few ways in which we actually think this introduction of a Rs. 200 note will work out for us.

1. Easy calculation
No matter how much you su*k at Maths, you must still know 2 ka table
2 one zaar 2…2 two zaar 4” is something we all have done to death and are confident of. With Rs. 200 notes, the calculation with the grocer or with your vegetable guy will be a cakewalk. 


2. 5 points for variety
Agreed the ease of transaction is all covered between Rs. 100 and Rs. 500 notes, but who minds variety? Plus one new note means an additional colour in your wallet.


3. No more haggling for change
With Rs. 200 notes, people will not run in the opposite direction or climb the nearest pole at the sight of a Rs. 2,000 note. Because one Rs. 2000 note = 10 (just 10) Rs. 200 notes, simple!

We have no idea why the government is messing with our minds. And why in the world are they trying to change the way we have counted our money for decades? Aarrgghh…
Dear government, all we want is Rs. 1000 back because the difference between Rs. 500 and Rs. 2000 is too damn much.
