Vinay Bhanawat, the Currency Man from Udaipur has been conferred an honorary doctorate in Notaphilist from the AIIPPHS State Government University in New Delhi.
It is worth a mention that Vinay Bhanawat was chosen for this honor, as an appreciation for his study of notes, world-class collection and research in India as well as globally. AIIPPHS Vice Chancellor Anju Bhandari said that earlier she was supposed to organize an event at Noida Film City Center in May 2021, but due to the ongoing COVID restrictions, the honorary doctorate was conferred in online mode.
Bhanavat is the only currency and coin collector who has been selected for this title, perhaps for the first time in the Notaphilist category. Bhanavat's name has been recorded in World Record books more than 50 times.
