The Reserve Bank of India will shortly issue new Rs.100 denomination banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi (new) series.
The new denomination will have the motif of ‘Rani ki vav’ – a stepwell located on the banks of Saraswati river in Gujarat’s Patan – on the reverse, depicting the country’s cultural heritage. The base colour of the note is lavender. The note has other designs and geometric patterns aligning with the overall colour scheme on both sides.
The new banknote will also be smaller in dimensions compared to the currently circulated notes.
All Rs.100 banknotes issued by the Reserve Bank in the earlier series will also continue to be legal tender.
