The note has different outlines, geometric examples lining up with the general shading plan, both at the front-side and turn around," RBI said in an announcement on Thursday.

Presentation of another cash category and configuration is finished keeping in thought different elements like simplicity of exchanges for the normal man, substitution of dirtied banknotes, swelling and the requirement for battling forging.

"To accomplish the ideal arrangement of cash that would limit the quantity of sections while expanding the likelihood of proffering accurate change, particularly at the lower end of divisions, there is a sensible need to present the missing category of Rs 200, which will make the present money framework more effective. Arrangement of the new division, along these lines, would encourage trade, especially for the regular man who manages categories at the lower end," it said.
