Bank officer: If the notes have missing pieces or are disfigured, burnt, washed or eaten by white ants, then they are not soiled but mutilated. Some times, if some important elements of a note are missing, we give back only part value of the note. Look at this note. Its number on one side is missing. So, I will give only half its value.
Bank officer: This too is torn into half but has a number on. So I will give half its value. But if a note is burnt in the middle and has the number intact on both sides, I will give its full value. Such notes have to be exchanged from us at the currency chest branch.
Children: Currency chest?
