HC Deb 10 July 1902 vol 110 c1371

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if he will state what progress has been made with the re-coinage of the two issues of rupees of 1840, which the Government of India decided to re-coin on account of the coins having reached the limit of light weight.


Arrangements have been made by the Government of India for the re-coinage in 1902–3 of such rupees of the issues of 1840 as have been withdrawn from circulation under orders issued in July, 1901, and January, 1902. But I am not able to state how many of these rupees have been re-coined up to the present time.
