After the nightmares of demonetization that hit the country on the night of 8th of November last year, the union government is planning to hit the country with another “mild attack”.
In a statement made by Reserve Bank Of India, the government of India is planning to issue new notes with enhanced security features for circulation.
“The RBI on Thursday said the banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi series-2005 are to carry inset letter ‘L’ on both number panels, bearing the signature of Governor Urjit Patel.”
The other things which will see a facelift will be the year of printing of, 2017, which will be on the reverse of the note. Among other features, numerals on both the panels will be in ascending size from left to right.
The first three alpha-numeric characters (prefix) will remain constant in size.
“All the banknotes in the denomination of Rs 10 issued by the Bank in the past will continue to be legal tender,” the central bank said in a notification.
