Did you ever wonder where all the demonetized currency went? The 500 and 1000 rupee notes that were banned have been utilised to make stationery products by prisoners of a jail. In fact, the entire activity was used as an asset to give the prisoners a new lease of life.

Life imprisoned inmates of Puzhal Central Prison used the shredded pieces of the demonetized currency to make customised stationery. A special team of 25-30 prisoners made stationery called ‘file-pads’, at the niche hand-made stationery making unit. In fact, the prisoners make close to 1,000 pads every day, earning anywhere between INR 160 to INR 200 on a daily basis.
Isn’t that just cool? Moreover, if you have any friends living in Tamil Nadu, you can ask them to buy these handmade pads.
