Prime News, National, May 23:- A 17-year-old science student from Odisha’s Nuapada district has devised a technique to generate electricity from banned Rs 500 notes.
Even before the debate on demonetisation getting slow down, a youth from Odisha has grabbed national attention by generating electricity from the scrapped Rs 500 note. His innovation has now grabbed national attention, with the PMO directing the state science and technology department to submit a report regarding the project.
Lachman Dundi, a student of Khariar College, said he could produce up to five volts from a single Rs 500 note.
“I used the silicon coating on the note to create energy .I tore up the note so that the coating is visible, which I exposed to direct sunlight. The silicon plate has to be connected to a transformer with an electric wire. This can help generate electricity.”
