Things went funny when people are selling the new Rs 2,000 notes at the hefty price which starts from Rs 3,500. Even some are spotted selling new notes at an unimaginable price of Rs 1.5 lakh because the new notes have some religious importance.
The series of five Rs 2000 notes starting with the number 786 are being sold by a seller on eBay for Rs 1.51 lakh because the number 786 is considered to be a holy number by many religious communities in India.
New Delhi-based astrologer, who didn’t want to share the name said: “India, people are ready to pay a premium for goods that sport numbers with religious significance such as vehicle number plates, mobile numbers or even residential addresses”.
When reached out to eBay India to enquire about such listings a spokesperson said that it does “not exercise control” on what is listed by independent sellers on eBay and also mentioned that “There has been no successful transaction for Rs 2,000 currency notes”
However, the company was disabling access to the notified listings to avoid any kind of legal hassle. So, what you think about this? Share your views in comment box below.
