10 rupee coins The Central Government gave this answer in Parliament


When you make a transaction and hand over a ten-rupee coin as payment, the merchant will sometimes refuse to accept it. The general public has the impression that there are several sizes and hues of ten-rupee coins in circulation, all of which are not genuine, i.e. legal tender. In a written response to a query in Parliament, the Central Government clarified that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) releases Rs 10 coins in a variety of themes, sizes, and designs, all of which are genuine. They can be used as legal currency in a wide range of situations.
