Small-value notes rejection upsets phone card vendors (Video).
Union chief, Habibullah, said these financial institutions rejected currencies lesser than 100 afs, although card distributors have an official letter from the central Da Afghanistan Bank.
Private bank officials say the main reason for rejecting these notes was the central bank itself did not accept small-denomination currencies either, said Habibullah, adding that the new practice had impacted their business.
He warned that union, with about 400 members in Jalalabad city alone, would begin selling the cards using Pakistani rupees if their demands were not met.
