A man became frustrated when people refused to accept Rs 10 coins and tried to buy a car using only pennies.
When a man arrived at a famous auto dealer in Dharmapuri carrying a vehicle full of Rs 10 coins to buy a car, the employees were taken aback.
Vetrivel from Aroor said that his mother runs a shop and that clients had refused to accept Rs 10 coins on multiple occasions, leaving a large mound of the cash at her home.
He also said that he backed down when he witnessed toddlers playing with 10 rupee coins, as if they were worthless. As a result, he chose to raise awareness by purchasing an automobile with only Rs 10 coins.
In less than a month, Vetrivel amassed ten coins valued at Rs 6 lakh, which he used to purchase a car. Though the dealership was initially sceptical, they eventually agreed to the arrangement after seeing Vetrivel's persistence.
"My mother has a store, and the coins are kept in the house." No one is willing to accept the coins. Even in banks, they refuse to admit that there aren't enough people to count. Why are banks refusing to accept coins when the RBI has not declared them worthless? Even if we express our dissatisfaction, nothing is done. "No action is taken even if we complain," Vetrivel told IndiaToday.in.
Vetrivel and his relatives brought sacks of Rs 10 coins to the centre, where they were all counted and the vehicle keys were ultimately handed over to him.
Similarly, a Tamil Nadu guy spends ten hours counting Rs 1 coins to buy his dream bike worth Rs 2.6 lakh. A man walked out of a Salem shop with his dream bike after paying 2.6 lakh in one-rupee coins. The money was brought in a van and then offloaded in wheelbarrows, which took the showroom ten hours to count.
