Damaged currency causes great suffering and embarrassment to citizens

5/21/2018

Some circles do not accept dealing with them
Baghdad / Huda al-Azzawi

The Iraqi citizen may be one of the few citizens in the world, who complain about not accepting the deal in the national currency torn or damaged by some departments or institutions or shops, which causes him many problems and verbal quarrels may reach sometimes to conflict with hands in full view of The concerned authorities that did not issue a clear and direct order obligates everyone to deal with the currency in any way.

Currency torn within salaries
Al-Sabah spoke with more than one official and a citizen in order to shed light on this problem.

"At the end of each month, we allocate more than (200) thousand dinars of the currency torn apart equally among the employees of our district," said a member of the committee to receive salaries in a state department.

The employee, who did not want to be named, said that «a lot of problems and verbal quarrels occur between us and the trustees of the Fund, who insist on handing over sums of money smuggled and affixed on both sides, beginning with the employee’s suffering in how to manage this currency rejected by most dealers, Cabs to shop owners ».

She cautioned the employee that all this is happening as a result of the absence of a number of measures and means that the Central Bank of Iraq to take to maintain the prestige of the currency and ease of circulation in the markets.

Currency exchange

As for the burning or buried currency, Hassan pointed out that it is submitted to the Central Bank exclusively to replace them according to certain controls, noting that the bank is working on its part to solve this problem through the processing of Rafidain Bank and Rashid new banknotes and small categories to pay within the salaries of employees,

He pointed out that t
he bank continues to print and improve the banknotes, especially small groups, and pump them to compensate for the damaged paper, while at the same time preserving the currency and accepting it whatever its status as a symbol representing Aadh country and inform the bank in the case of refusal of banks received the damaged currency of citizens.

The suffering of the working class
For his part, said the citizen Rafie Abdul Latif MP, that the working classes and poor are the most social groups are vulnerable to deal with damaged currencies, because this segment traded in many of them, in addition to the same currency to factors that lead to damage early, such as moisture and wet and other It is noteworthy that even the gas stations have refused to accept the torn paper currency,

Therefore, the government and the concerned parties should enact laws to protect the currency as is the case in a number of foreign countries that have issued legal provisions criminalizing those who refuse to deal with them if they are torn or
old.

Stamping of coins

On the re-minting of the coin for small groups and thus salvation from the problem of extinction of the currency currently in circulation, drew Professor of Economics, University of Nahrain Dr. Ngham Hussein Nima, that there were attempts in 2005-2006 to issue a coin of 250 dinars and 100 dinars and 50 dinars and 25

But the loss of the culture of trading in small metal groups among the public forced the Central Bank to stop circulation and convert it into scrap metal and sell it to a trader, so before taking any steps for the introduction of the coin must propagate the culture of trading in small metal categories

And this is certainly the responsibility of the Central Bank of Iraq through the dissemination of financial culture among all segments of the society and openness to the public to raise financial awareness among their ranks and to indicate the importance of dealing with metal groups And keep the currency

Measures to protect the currency
to that said economic researcher Hassan Jamg, said the currency ‘s strength will be in a positive state with the power of the state, the larger the strong and stable state and the economy in the active state, the same presence and effectiveness in the transactions of internal and external of this currency,

and no secret that most communities and nations take A number of measures and means to preserve this currency and to attempt to secure its material and moral status from any external influences that may be natural or by an effective act, such as the case of currency fraud or smuggling abroad,

it may be among the solutions to emphasize the need to respect National currency and dealing Regardless of their condition, and in the case that the currency is very tired or in poor condition, such as torn or semi-damaged, the obligation of government agencies to facilitate the taking or retrieval, and then delivery to banks or the competent banking authorities to destroy them and issue a new currency instead of that damaged.

Sadr is not an easy partner for the Americans, but at the same time is no longer an enemy, an Iraqi national figure has become more pragmatic before. "

"Low voter turnout has helped Sadr get more seats than expected. He has a more unifying base of other parties and better grassroots organizations that helped mobilize his base during the vote.

In contrast, Sadr has been able to strengthen support by responding to popular demands, The populist rhetoric, which appealed to its base and the growing feelings against the institution of government and the fight against corruption in them. "

"The formation of the Iraqi government now depends on the parties that form an alliance that can have the largest number of seats in parliament. This may be the coalition that won the largest number of seats or a new coalition that appeared before the first session of parliament.

It may take more than a month for the results to be ratified by the federal court. "
