Bhubaneswar, 5 January
The new Rs 10 denomination currency notes unveiled by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) feature the centuries old heritage Sun Temple of Konark, Odisha as a motif on the reserve side.
The RBI would soon issue the new notes with the portrait of Mahatma Gandhi and bearing the signature of its Governor Urjit Patel.
The base colour of the note is chocolate brown, it said.
“The new denomination has the motif of Sun Temple, Konark on the reverse, depicting the country’s cultural heritage,” the central bank said.
Among the salient features of the banknotes, on the obverse (front) the note will bear a portrait of Mahatma Gandhi at the centre, the Ashoka Pillar emblem on the right, watermarks and number panel with numerals growing from small to big on the top left side and bottom right side.
The reverse side of the new Rs 10 note carries the year of printing on the left, a Swachh Bharat logo, the motif of the Sun Temple and the denomination numeral 10 in Hindi Devnagri script. All previously circulated bank notes of Rs 10 denominations would continue to reamin legal tenders.
