Money is not made of paper, surprising information came
‘Where and how is money created?’—the question is often heard. Also ‘what is money made of?’ Many people want to know that. But almost everyone will say that money is made of paper! Your idea or answer is not correct!
The Reserve Bank is giving other information on this matter. The company says that if the notes are made of paper only, they will not last long. Because paper is not durable. If so, what is the note made of?
It is known that one of the main and important raw materials for making notes is cotton. 100 percent cotton is used to make currency notes. Not only South Asian countries, many countries use cotton as raw material for making notes.
The fiber in cotton is called linen. Cotton is mixed with a gelatin adhesive solution during note making to make it more durable. As a result, currency notes do not tear easily.
