The 25 paise coins mentioned as ‘रुपये का चौथा भाग’. These coins were made of nickel and 2.5 grams of weight. From 1964 to 1968 these 25 paise coins started to be called ’25 paise’ instead of ‘Naye paise’. Before 1957 these 25 paise coins were known as 1/4 Rupee or चार आना because of the anna monetary system.
