The design of these notes is similar to the Rs 500 notes in Mahatma Gandhi (New) Series which were first notified on November 8 last year.



On November 8 last year, the Centre had announced the demonetisation of old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes following which the RBI had released new notes with improved security features.
