? The rumour suggests that the 10 rupee coins have been declared invalid by the RBI. The rumour also suggests that there are 10 rupee coins with two different designs in circulation and that one of the coin is fake!

? The rumour has spread like wildfire and in many cities of India vendors, shopkeepers, grocery shop owners, taxi drivers, autowallahs, etc., have stopped accepting 10 rupee coins from customers saying that the tender is fake.

? Two pictures of the 10 rupee coin (one supposed to valid and the one supposed to be fake) laying down points of distinction between the two coins are also being exchanged over Whatsapp!
