A 27-year-old homoeopath collected approximately 60,000 ₹10 coins and used them to buy a car to raise awareness amongst Tamil Nadu's Dharmapuri locals. The sole reason behind the doctor opting to do so is reportedly due to most people and traders refusing to accept ₹10 coins in the city.

While explaining his decision to do so, Dr A Vetrivel, who also runs a school, revealed that nearly a month ago, when he was interacting with a few of his students, he noticed that a couple of them were playing with the ₹10 coins. Upon asking them why they were playing with coins, the students informed him that the coins were useless, reported The New Indian Express.

Vetrivel added that these kids were not wrong about it, as most shops in Dharmapuri do not accept ₹10 coins usually. So, he came up with a plan and decided to bring awareness to the locals. As per the report, Dr A Vetrivel then went door to door in his locality to collect coins and exchange them with ₹10 notes for nearly 30 days. He also added that he collected coins from banks as well."

A Bizarre But Unique Way To Bring Awareness

"I collected 60,000 coins from Harur alone. I bought a car with the collected coins," Dr A Vetrivel was quoted as saying. He also added that it was fairly easy, as individuals were more than happy to exchange the coins for notes.

The 27-year-old further revealed that he carried the coins to the showroom inside small plastic bags, and the dealer had to verify it with numerous banks before finalising the transaction.
