200 Rupees note will introduced on tomorrow,see how it look

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will issue the Rs 200 denomination banknotes tomorrow. The currency note is introduced due to liquidity issue.
“The Reserve Bank of India will issue on August 25, Rs 200 denomination banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi (New) Series, bearing signature of Dr. Urjit R. Patel, RBI Governor,” RBI said in a release.

“The new denomination has Motif of Sanchi Stupa on the reverse. The base colour of the note is Bright Yellow. The note has other designs, geometric patterns aligning with the overall colour scheme, both at the obverse and reverse,” RBI said.

The circulation of the new note is likely to bridge the shortage of small currency denomination notes that have faced a shortage after introduction of Rs 2000 note and demonetization of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. RBI also expects the new note to be very popular as there is no other denomination between Rs 100 and Rs 500 notes.
