Almost Done! Rs. 1000 released

After 20,10,100, 500 and 5000, this time it is the Rs. 1000 note going through a makeover. Released today, this note will join the ranks of the others in taking currency notes of Pakistan into the 21st century.

Now only if the transition time b/w the new and the old would go over quickly. I’m getting tired of recognizing and carrying two different kinds of notes everywhere. The only note left now to be converted is the Rs. 50 one. Also, i hear a Rs. 20,000 note is in the pipeline too.

    Nice pic of Quaid. Wish too that the transition was over, as my wallet looks messy with different sizes.

    I m not against these changes but i don’tknow why we pakistani ppl always do such things which arises disputes, at least in our thoughts. If i m not wrong then the color of the pakistani flag is red and why is that ??? though one change is good that they have changed the Quaid’s suit from coat paint tie to sherwanee !!!

    20000 note… who’ll give a change for that? :P

    20000 note means 5 note for 1 lakh
    50 note for 1 million
    500 note for 1 carore

    one can easily carry all that amount in pocket… means corrupt society and rampant cases bribery ….

    If you look at the other side of the picture, we are having bigger bills and losing the values of smaller bills.
