Dr BR Ambedkar image on currency notes

NGO demands Dr BR Ambedkar image on currency notes

As the country paid rich tributes to Dr BR Ambedkar on his 54th death anniversary on Monday, a little-known organisation in Mumbai has suggested that the Government considers carrying the Indian Constitution architect’s picture on currency notes.

At Chaityabhoomi, Ambedkar’s memorial, the tens of thousands of his followers, who thronged the shrine, saw large banners promoting the cause. Ironically, the demand has no been put forth by any Dalit group. Muslim volunteers of an NGO have come up with the demand.

“Ambedkar was not only the leader of the downtrodden but was also the architect of modern India. And what better way to honour his contribution than to give him an esteemed place on the Indian currency,” said Saira Patel, general secretary of Mumbaikar Asanghatith Gharelu Kamgar Union, a non-governmental organisation working with Dalits and Muslims in Andheri.

Patel added that they have sent a memorandum to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. “We will approach Dalit leaders for support and are considering a tie-up with mobile phone companies to initiate a public voting campaign through SMS,” she said.

She added that unlike in the West, where several leaders are featured on currency notes, in India we only have Mahatma Gandhi’s picture.

“Gandhiji is no doubt the most recognised face of the Indian freedom struggle. But we think that Dr Ambedkar also deserves to be on the Indian currency,” Patel said.

Mohammad Patel, another member of the group said, “We are not saying that Gandhi’s pictures should be taken off the notes.

However, Dr Ambedkar’s pictures can appear on at least some denominations.”

Though the demand for Dr Ambedkar’s to feature on currency notes has been made by a Muslim group, there is support aplenty from Dalit organisations.

Rajendra Gavai, national general secretary of the Republican Party of India said, “Dr Ambedkar is the architect of the country’s constitution. We will support the demand.”

  9. Everyone knows that Baba saheb Dr. Ambedkar was not only the “Father of the Indian Constitution” he was also one of the greatest Economists of the world. I had already Written and published an article in Punjabi & in Hindi that the “Reserve Bank of India” is the product of the brain of Baba Saheb Dr. Ambedkar. “Royal Commission on Indian Currency and Finance” / “E. Hilton Young Commission” came to India, in 1924-1925 only due to book written by Baba Saheb Dr. Ambedkar named “The Problem of Rupee Its Origin and Its Solution.” Baba Saheb Dr. Ambedkar advised “E. Hilton Commission”, to set up a Central Bank and the importance & the need of the the Central Bank in India for the economic development of India, while he was discussing the matter on finance and currency with Commission. i. e. the image (photo) of Baba Saheb Dr. Ambedkar on Indian currency is the need of India.
    Dr. Naredra Jadhav Principle Economic Adviser of R.B.I.(Retd), Member Planning Commission has also written in his book “Dr.Ambedkar`s Economic Though and Philosophy” that the R.B.I.was established only due to Dr.Ambedkar. India wants the Image of Dr. Ambedkar on
    Indian Currency.

  15. jitender kumar says:

    yes, i agree and support this campaign. baba saheb was a great economist who had written much on indian economy and currency but ganghi had nothing for indian economy. dr. baba saheb had won the title of the greatest indian by a competetion, while mr. gandhi was declared great without any election. thats mean baba saheb is really the greatest indian and father of indian constitution, architect of modern india while mr. gandhi has been declared a fraud father of nation. so dr. ambedkar’s image should be on indian currency by all the way.

  22. Inder Singh says:

    I am personally affirmed and desire that Baba Saheb Dr Ambedkar photo must appear on each Indian currency note. He was not only the leader of Dalits but of the whole nation and the world. He has been a most intellectual personality of the globe of all times. Printing his photo on Indian currency would certainly boost the image and pride of the nation. Actually the role and contribution of MK Gandhi has been a controversial among people of the country and the world. He has been made a forced and artificially induced person in modern India.
    There are personalities many times better than him like Honourable Vivekananda, Rabindranath Tagore, ShrI Munda, Sant shree Jyoti Rao Phule. Gautam Buddha, Chandra Shekhar Azad, Bhagat Singh, like.
    Now my question is that whether voting method is required?
    Secondly when MK Gandhi’ photo got started printed on Indian currency notes, was the decision taken based on voting method?
    It’s really a mockery. So can the policy makers and the government can stop doing this sort of mockery to the people of the country?
    Can policy makers on one day exercise impartiality and fairness?
    Should the photos printing on Indian currency be equated and dealt like a winner of TV shows like Nach Baliye, IGT, Big Boss, and so on?
    Not at all expected from RBI. Please stop making the making own and people’ mockery

    So please stop this exercise method and take a constitutional decision – based on logic and rationality.
