The note will carry a motif of the Konark Temple on its reverse side. Another feature on the new note includes a see-through register with denominational numeral 10. 2. Denominational numeral 10० in Devnagari script and portrait of Mahatma Gandhi at the centre. The new note will continue to have windowed demetalised security thread with inscriptions 'Bharat' (in devnagri).
Like the other new series notes, the ₹10 note will have the year of printing of the note on the left, the 'Swachh Bharat' logo with slogan, and language panel.
While in denominations of ₹200 and above only new designs are in circulation, the older notes would continue to exist in the case of ₹10 and ₹50 notes.
The RBI said that it will shortly be putting out the new note into circulation bearing signature of governor Urjit Patel. The note has other designs, geometric patterns aligning with the overall colour scheme, both at the obverse and reverse. Existing banknotes in the denomination of ₹10 issued by the RBI in the earlier series will continue to be legal tender.
