The former member of Sonia Gandhi-led National Advisory Council (NAC), Narendra Jadhav, has made a proposal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi that currency notes should also feature images Dr BR Ambedkar and Swami Vivekananda.
Jadhav was also the member of the National Committee for Celebration of the 125th Birth Anniversary of BR Ambedkar which was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“I made this suggestion to the prime minister during the first meeting of the committee. I said that currencies of the US and the UK have pictures of several figures and that could be done in India as well. We can have other founding fathers, specifically BR Ambedkar, and Swami Vivekananda on our currency notes.”

“He was a monetary economist par excellence and had given considerable intellectual inputs for the establishment of the RBI. Keeping this in mind, it would be a good gesture to have Dr Ambedkar on Indian currency notes.”
