Pakistan new 20-rupee note (B233a) confirmed

Responding to the public outcry over the similar colors of the 20-rupee note (B232a) issued on 13 August 2005, and the 5,000-rupee note (B239a) issued on 27 May 2006, the State Bank of Pakistan today issued a revised Rs20 note which is identical to the previous issue, except the colors have been revised to facilitate distinguishing it from all other denominations in the new series. The previous brown Rs20 remains legal tender.
