Since the surprise move of demonetisation in 2016, in which the then currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 were withdrawn from circulation, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has introduced many new currency notes such as the 100 rupee note. From the 2,000 rupee and the Rs 500 rupee notes introduced immediately after the note ban in November 2016 to the latest addition to the new Indian currency, the 100 rupee note, here’s a look at all the new currency notes brought to circulation in recent times.
