Under this category comes a note that is broken and you have all the pieces.

If the print of the note with the Impact category is not too bad and the bank officer is satisfied that the note is not a fake, then according to the meutillated category the note will get refund based on the size of the note.
On the other hand, in the case of mismatched category, both pieces of note worth more than 50 rupees will be treated as separate notes and will be refunded accordingly. Refunds received under this category will be deducted at the size of this note.
Keep these things in mind
A maximum of 20 notes or less than 5000 rupees can be changed in one day. Refund will be given within thirty days if more happens. In addition, in this case the bank may charge a fee.
