AGARTALA: A group of students in Kailashahar central school in North Tripura has set an example for their elders to supply currencies of smaller denominations at a time when the state is hit due to scarcity of notes after demonetisation.
According to school authority, the students of the school had saved small amounts of money from their Tiffin allowances given daily by parents.
They came up with the idea of making a donation to help resolve the small currency note problem after an acute shortage of currency. Shubhrangshu Dey (15), a student of class IX, had collected the amount from his friends for donation and they could reach the figure of Rs 5 thousand in small denominations of 5, 10, 20 and 50 rupee notes.
The students met the branch manager of State Bank of India (SBI), Kailashahar, and donated the entire amount so that the small currencies could be distributed among people who need them.
Ranjit Debnath, the branch manager of SBI, was pleasantly surprised by the gesture of the students and said, “It is a great gesture on the part of students, it shows their purity of mind and commitment to the cause of people and the nation.
