RBI issues bright yellow rupees 200 note

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced that it would issue Rs 200 notes on Friday. This new Rs. 200 note is the second new denomination to be issued since the demonitisation exercise. The base color of the Rs. 200 note will be bright yellow. It will bear the signature of Urijit Patel, the RBI governor on the front. The note will have the 'Swachh Bharat' logo with slogan along with a motif of Sanchi Stupa on the reverse side. The new note is smaller than the existing 100 note with dimensions of 66mmx146mm. As per the experts, the new 200 note will improve the efficiency of the present currency system in India.
