We have a new denomination in our currency! Has anyone seen or used the new Twenty Rupee bills yet? I was handed one as change today and found the checkered print on the urdu “20” a bit odd. To be honest, the overall look reminds me more of UAE Dirhams than the other Pakistani Rupee notes. Any thoughts?
On further reflection, I think the blank space at the sides is the govt’s way of accomodating all those people who like to write interesting graffiti and leave “paan stains” on notes before passing them on. Either that or when you use the note, the recipient tears off the blank bit like a ticket stub and gives it back to you.
