This machine cuts old notes into small pieces, then these pieces are melted and made into a brick shape. These bricks are used in many works.
It should be known that every year 5 million notes in India are out of circulation whose total weight is equal to 4500 tons. It is worrisome that the amount of ink and paper required by India to print notes is not produced here and the government has to import both these things from abroad.
