Now India has new Rs 50 and Rs 200 notes; have you got one yet?

New Delhi: The Reserve Bank of India recently introduced two new denomination notes of Rs 50 and Rs 200. While the new Rs 50 note is fluorescent blue in color, the Rs 200 note is bright yellow. The RBI has said it will issue new Rs 200 denomination banknotes from select RBI offices and some banks on Friday. Some experts, however, said the new Rs 200 note may not be available through ATMs as they will have to be recalibrated to accommodate the new note.
The Rs 50 banknotes will bear the motif of ‘Hampi with Chariot’ on the reverse that depicts India’s cultural heritage. The RBI said it will issue these Rs 50 denomination banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi (new) series. The new note will have the Ashoka pillar emblem on the right side of the obverse and will bear the year of printing on the reverse side. It will also feature a Swachh Bharat logo with slogan and language panel.
The Rs 200 note has motif of ‘Sanchi Stupa’ on the reverse, depicting the country’s cultural heritage. It has other designs, geometric patterns aligning with the overall color scheme, both at the obverse and reverse. The notes will be in the Mahatma Gandhi (new) Series, bearing the signature of RBI Governor Urjit R Patel.
