RBI said the new denomination has motif of Sun Temple, Konark, on the reverse, depicting the country’s cultural heritage. The note has other designs, geometric patterns aligning with the overall colour scheme, both at the obverse and reverse, it said.
The design was approved by the government last week. The change in design in the old Rs 10 note was last made in 2005. In August last year, RBI had introduced the new Rs 200 and Rs 50 notes under the Mahatma Gandhi series.
The move to reintroduce lower denomination notes in a new design comes after the government’s plan to get rid of counterfeiting.
On 8 November 2016, the government announced demonetisation to withdraw Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 currency notes, amounting to around 86% of the currency in circulation of Rs 17.9 trillion. Since then, RBI has replaced these with the new Rs 2000 notes and redesigned Rs 500 notes.
