On Monday, the Reserve Bank of India said that it will shortly come up with Rs. 10 currency notes bearing RBI governor's signature. All banknotes in the denomination of Rs 10 issued by the Reserve Bank in the past will continue to be legal tender, RBI noted.
The design of these notes is similar in all respects to Rs 10 banknotes in Mahatma Gandhi (New) Series, the central bank said in a statement. In April this year, RBI had announced the issuance of Rs 200 and Rs 500 notes in Mahatma Gandhi (New) series with the signature of current governor Shaktikanta Das.
The Rs. 200 notes feature a motif of Sanchi Stupa while Rs. 500 note bears Red Fort as the overarching theme for the new notes. In addition, the notes come with Swachh Bharat logo that bears the title 'Ek Kadam Swacchta ki Aur'.
The rupee symbol as well as the currency denomination will be highlighted in colour changing ink of green-blue.
