The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will shortly issue Rs. 100 denomination bank notes with inset letter ‘L’, in both the numbering panels, in the Mahatma Gandhi Series-2005, bearing the signature of Dr D Subbarao, governor, RBI, and the year of printing 2012 printed on the reverse of the bank note.
The design of these notes to be issued now is similar in all respects to the Rs. 100 bank notes in Mahatma Gandhi Series-2005, issued earlier. All the Bank notes in the denomination of Rs. 100 issued by the Bank in the past will continue to be legal tender.
