Ban on Qatar riyal at Kochi airport

Nedumbassery: Qatar currency Riyal was on Tuesday banned at Cochin International airport.
The Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) informed the duty free shops at the airport not to accept riyal from Tuesday noon.
Director ACK Nair said that ban follows instruction from financial institutions.
From Qatar, there are 18 services to Kochi every week; Qatar Airways has 11 services and Jet Airways has seven services.
People flying from Qatar to Nedumbassery will be inconvenienced if duty free shops don’t accept Qatar riyal. Malayalis possessing riyal will also find it difficult if ban continues.
