The untouched Rs 100 note since the denomination of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 note will be seen in a new pattern as RBI has launched the new Rs 100 note that will be in circulation by the next month. However, the old Rs 100 note will continue to be in legal tender, said by RBI.
Except Mahatma Gandhi’s place, everything is different in the new Rs 100 note. The new lavender coloured note featured Gujarat’s Rani-Ki-Vani which is a 11-th century wonder in Patan on the back side. Rani Ki Vani has been recognized as the World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.
RBI said in its statement that, “The base colour of the note is lavender. The note has other designs, geometric patterns aligning with the overall colour scheme, both at the obverse and reverse. Dimension of the banknote will be 66mm x 142mm”.
The size of the Rs 100 note is slightly smaller than the old Rs 100 note but bigger than the Rs 10 note. With the arrivals of the new notes, banks have to recalibrate the ATMs for the new notes.
The last calibration process of the ATM was done for the new noted of Rs 2000, 500 and 200 notes in 2016.
