>>1073051 Basically it looks like the 50 rupee note at first glance, so if an official asks for a bribe, you can give them a stack of 0's and hopefully he'll be none the wiser. Since this allows people to bribe officials without using actual money, it creates demand for the notes, which actually makes them worth actual rupees as people clamber to acquire them in such a corrupt country.
The point is that it changes the social situation to make it clear that the one giving the note is refusing to bribe.
The person asking for the bribe can insist, of course, but they will have been made aware the other does not approve and may fight it. If the situation draws attention, the person asking for the bribe has a great deal to lose.
Smart idea, but i can imagine if i was pulled over on my honda chickenchaser on a dark road in the middle of nowhere and handed the policeman one of these I'd be more than likely to get truncheoned in the kneecaps
>>1073440 The thing is though, any retaliation draws attention to the situation. Sure, the cop can make up some bullshit charge, but you can only haul in so many innocent people yelling "bribery" before someone pays attention. Similarly, you can only truncheon so many people before it starts to cause problems.
With the Indian federal government cracking down on corruption, you don't want to raise your hand to be made an example of.
Its not perfect, of course, but India is corrupt as all fuck so any little bit helps.
