Central government has notified instructions that from 30th June 2011 the 25 paise coin has become invalid. The government was indicating earlier itself that it will become out of circulation shortly. The increase in the cost of living and massive price rise has resulted in such a situation that 25 paise and even 50 paise coin will not be able to purchase anything.
So the 25 paise coin has gone to the coin collectors. It will not be long before the 50 paise coin also will follow.
