India to issue revised 20-rupee note with R inset letter

Today the Reserve Bank of India announced that it will soon issue a 20 rupee (US$0.45) note with inset letter R within the serial number panels.

Except for the change in the inset letter, the design of these notes to be issued now is similar in all respects to the banknotes issued earlier in Mahatma Gandhi Series with additional/new security features issued on August 17, 2006. All banknotes in the denomination of Rs20 issued by the RBI in the past will continue to be legal tender.
