A side effect of demonetisation

How large is Rs 1,000 crores? Here’s a pic­ture.

What Rs 1,000 crores looks like

Two years ago, when ex­plor­ing the wealth of can­did­ates, we put to­geth­er a few visu­als to show how large a bundle Rs 1 lakh would form, all the way up to Rs 10,000 crores — in de­nom­in­a­tions of Rs 1,000.

Post the de­mon­et­isa­tion of these notes, we were amused to find that the top searches that led to our blog were:

  1. volume of 100 crore ru­pees
  2. in­di­an money 1000 bundles
  3. what is the size of an 1000 thou­sand crores
  4. height of a bundle of 1000 rs notes
  5. weight of 1 crores in 100 ru­pees
  6. one 1000 ru­pees weight

For those look­ing for the an­swer: the notes don’t take much space, but they’re quite heavy.
