RBI clears the rumor about illegality of Rs.10 coin:
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) clarified that all the Rs. 10 coins that are in circulation continue to be a legal tender.
The Reserve Bank has advised members of the public not to give credence to such ill-informed notions and ignore them and continue to accept these coins as legal tender without any hesitation.

It has been reported that some less-informed or uninformed persons who suspect the genuineness of such coins are creating doubts in the minds of ordinary people including traders, shopkeepers, etc., impeding the circulation of these coins.
