RBI brings new Rs. 200/- currency note todayToday Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is going to bring new Rs. 200/- notes in the market. The new currency notes will have the motif of famous Sanchi Stupa on the reverse side of the note. This would depict India's rich cultural heritage. The colour of the note will be bright yellow and the dimension is 66mm x 146 mm. For visually impaired people, the new note will have raised printing of Mahatma Gandhi portrait and Ashoka Pillar emblem. The new currency note will carry the signature of present RBI Governor, Mr. Urijit Patel.
However, I am curious to know whether this is the first time the Government is bringing currency note of Rs. 200/- denomination, or not. Has any Member seen Rs. 200/- notes earlier (in India)? Senior Members may kindly reply.
