But what is proven is the notes are fragile. So you can't store them for long, stash them away in black. Of course, you can change the one or two notes that tear with the bank but if you go with a stack of such torn notes then you are going to be questioned why you kept so much cash for so long. And with a small life, they need to be recycled by RBI helping find counterfeits faster if any circulating. Is this another genius idea by the govt.?
