From Curiosity.com - India's "Worthless" Zero Rupee Note


Zero rupee notes were first distributed by the non-profit organization 5th Pillar in 2007. Today, more than 2.5 million of the notes are in use across India. The notes are meant to be a non-violent form of protest against bribery and corruption, and so far, they seem to be very successful. Stories of their use typically describe a citizen handing the note to a corrupt official, who becomes flustered and doesn't pursue a bribe any further. Want to learn more fun facts?
