Issue of ₹ 20 banknotes with the inset letter ‘L’, with numerals in ascending size in number panels and without intaglio printing

The Reserve Bank of India will shortly issue ₹ 20 denomination banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi Series-2005, with the inset letter ‘L’ in both the number panels, bearing signature of Dr. Raghuram G. Rajan, Governor, Reserve Bank of India and the year of printing '2016' printed on the reverse of the banknote.

The design and security features of these banknotes to be issued now is similar to the ₹ 20 banknotes in Mahatma Gandhi Series- 2005 issued recently with the ascending size of numerals in the number panels, without intaglio printing, without latent image, and without identification mark. The colour at the obverse of the notes remains lighter due to removal of intaglio printing. (Ref: Press release No.2016-2017/678 dated September 15, 2016).

All the banknotes in the denomination of ₹ 20 issued by the Bank in the past will continue to be legal tender.
