MUMBAI: The Reserve Bank of India will shortly issue Rs 100 and Rs 50 denomination banknotes incorporating the new rupee symbol on the obverse and reverse, with inset letter ‘L’ in both the numbering panels, in the Mahatma Gandhi Series-2005 bearing the signature of Dr. Raghuram G Rajan, Governor, Reserve Bank of India, and the year of printing ‘2014’ printed on the reverse of the banknote.
