"The design of these notes, to be issued now, is similar in all respects to the Rs.10 and Rs.50 bank notes in Mahatma Gandhi Series-2005, issued earlier," the RBI said in a statement.

All the banknotes in the denomination of Rs.10 and Rs.50 issued by the RBI in the past will continue to be legal tender, the central bank said.

A symbol for the Indian rupee was officially adopted in 2010. It is derived from the Devanagari consonant Ra with an added horizontal bar.
