I prefer the former Indo-Pakistanese system. 16 anas in a rupee, 12 paise in an ana (or: 4 paise, depending on the sources). Of course, the coins should be such as : 3 paise, 2 anas 1/2, etc. And there should be both new paise and old paise in circulation at the same time. One should always remember that nickel anas issued between November, 1972 and March, 1973 are fakes, and their use can be punished by 50 years imprisonment and a fine of 50,000 (new) rupees, plus an extra fee of 13 anas 7 paise as legal taxes. ===== Philippe Caquant "High thoughts must have high language."
