RBI to issue Rs 200 note tomorrow. Here is how it looks

Deepak, 24/08/2017

The Reserve Bank of India will issue the first-ever Rs 200 denomination banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi (New) Series tomorrow. The currency note is expected to address liquidity issue and also reduce the burden on the Rs 100 note.

"The Reserve Bank of India will issue on August 25, Rs 200 denomination banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi (New) Series, bearing signature of Dr. Urjit R. Patel, Governor, Reserve Bank of India from select RBI offices, and some banks," RBI said in a release

The new denomination has Motif of Sanchi Stupa on the reverse, depicting the country's cultural heritage. The base colour of the note is Bright Yellow. The note has other designs, geometric patterns aligning with the overall colour scheme, both at the obverse and reverse.

The circulation of new note is likely to bridge the shortage of small currency denomenation notes that have faced a shortage after introduction of Rs 2000 note and demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. RBI also expects the new note to be very popular as there is no other denomination between Rs 100 and Rs 500.

Here are all the features of the Rs 200 note and how it looks:
