Here's how the new refurbished denomination looks under the new currency regime:

The new notes have extra security features besides having peculiar colour, theme and size which differentiate the new bills from the earlier series.

# The Rs 500 notes will be stone grey in color with a predominant new theme of the Indian heritage site Red Fort.

# The Rs 2,000 notes, which are being introduced for the first time, will be of magenta colour with Mangalayan imprinted on the reverse side and are introduced by RBI as part of Mahatma Gandhi (New) Series.

# The higher value currency notes will have other designs, geometric patterns aligning with the overall colour scheme both on the obverse and reverse.

# Currency notes of Rs 100 and Rs 50 will continue to be the legal tender, and the Reserve Bank will come out with new series of such notes with new design and added security features.

# New denomination has motif of the Mangalayan on the reverse, depicting the country's first venture in interplanetary space.

# Government will re-introduce Rs 1,000 banknotes too in a few months.
