The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Friday, 26 April, said that a new Rs 20 note will be issued shortly.
In an official statement released on Friday, the central bank, which is the official issuer of currency in the country, said that “the new denomination has motif of Ellora Caves on the reverse, depicting the country’s cultural heritage.”
The new Rs 20 note will be “greenish yellow” in colour, the statement added.
“All the banknotes in the denomination of Rs 20 issued by the Reserve Bank in the earlier series will continue to be legal tender,” the statement also said.
Apart from the motif of Ellora caves, the note would also carry common features like Mahatma Gandhi’s portrait, RBI governor’s signature, the Ashoka pillar and Swachh Bharat logo.
