The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Thursday said it will shortly issue new Rs 10 denomination currency notes. Here’s what you need to know about them:
- The new notes would carry inset letter “L” in both number panels.
- The notes with the signature of the RBI Governor, Dr Urjit R Patel, will have ‘2017’ as the year of printed on the reverse of the note.
- The numerals in both the number panels of these banknotes are in the ascending size from left to right while the first three alpha-numeric characters (prefix) remain constant in size.
- All the banknotes in the denomination of Rs 10 issued by the bank in the past will continue to be a legal tender., unlike Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s announcement on November 8, 2016, which had scrapped old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes.
