The modern forms of Money are:

  2. Coins- Coins are special metallic structure made out of various metals like bronze, nickel,.. etc.
  3. Bank deposits- Bank deposits are also a form of money. People can open bank accounts and make demand deposits.

'Rupee' is widely accepted as a medium of exchange because:

  • The Indian government has sanctioned the use of 'Rupee' as the official currency of India.
  • No person within India, can legally refuse rupee as mode of payment in India.
  • Rupee is issued and monitored by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) only.
