Two comic books are already available on this site – 'Raju and the Money Tree' explains basic banking and 'Money Kumar and Monetary Policy!' explains the role and relevance of the Reserve Bank's monetary policy for the common person.
The site has films on security features of currency notes of different denominations and an educative film to persuade citizens to not to staple notes. Interestingly, the site also has games section. This section aims at educating children through entertainment. The games currently on display have been especially designed to familiarise school children with India's various currency notes.
