New 200 Rupees Note

After the demonetisation, ban of Rs 1000 and 500 notes and issue of new 200 rupees note in India, here comes the new 200 rupees note.

The Reserve Bank of India is said to release the denomination of 200 rupees.

This denomination of 200 is going to get popular as there are no other denomination notes in between 500 and 1000 rupees notes.

The RBI said in an release that, ‘it will release Rs 200 denomination banknotes on August 25th, 2017 that bears the signature of Dr. Urjit R. Patel, the Governor of Reserve Bank of India and some banks’.

By now you must be all anxious to know more about this new note and its features. And so, here are the features of the new 200 rupees notes.

 Front view of the new 200 rupees note:
