Indian currency lines. Nowadays, even though digital payments have reduced the amount of cash in people’s pockets, the importance of notes in currency transactions has not diminished. Apart from online payments, people also transact through Rs 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 2000 notes. We use these Indian notes daily but have you ever wondered why there are diagonal lines around all the notes and what these diagonal lines mean? If you look carefully at all the notes, you will see that there are diagonal lines on the notes ranging from Rs. 5 to Rs. 2000. It also has fewer lines in Rs. 2 notes and more lines in Rs. 2000 notes. These lines fluctuate according to the value of the note. Today we will tell you about the principle and meaning of these diagonal lines.

Italics are called blade marks.

These lines on the sides of the notes are called Bleed Marks. In fact, these lines are made for blind people, who cannot see the notes with their own eyes, they can understand the value of notes through these lines. No one can fool the blind with these slashes. Blind people can find out the value of the note by running their fingers on these lines. This note is of Rs. 50 or Rs. 2000.

These laws were made for the benefit of the blind.

There are different diagonal lines according to the value of each note. If you look at the Rs 100 note, you will see four lines on either side of it. Two hundred notes also have four lines, but they also have two zeros attached to them, whereas your 500 note has 5 lines and 2000 note has 7 lines. The important thing is that all the lines in the notes are at the top.
