Desis are unrivaled for their unique judgaad and unconventional way of churning money outta misery. Even as the RBI called for a withdrawal circulation of Rs 2000 notes last Friday, commoners have been wondering did they actually exist in the first place? Within a year or two of demonetization in 2016, these pink prickly notes disappeared. However, there are no dearth of hoarders, who actually had stashed bundles. Now, everyone’s coming out of the woodworks. But apparently not everyone. So how is RBI dealing with this? Here’s how a Delhi based meat shop is luring customers with Rs 2000 notes. RBI should take note. The notice on the shop says – Get Rs 2100 worth of goods on a Rs 2000 note. Now this is pure marketing genius you won’t find in the west.
If you think RBI is smart, think again cos Delhites are much smarter.

Netiznes responded to the post with memes and hilarious reactions. While some admired, others ridiculed the campaign. Some posted similar campaigns generated by others. One user jibes – new technique to convert black money. Another user remarked that no matter how smart this seems on the surface, it won’t generate sales. Yet another user laments on the whole move by the government that would give free passage to laundering black money.
It won’t increase sales. For the shopping, people will need to have the 2000 rupees note with themselves which is very rarely found . And since the notes are less in hand , so the customer would too be less in number as the one not having 2k note would avoid shopping ..
