The new Rs 100 denomination banknote is as ***** as the new Rs 10, 20, 50, and 200 notes. For some reason, I really like 2000 note though and wish 500 Rs been bigger than existing 100.
Comparatively, the new Rs 100 denomination banknote is much smaller than those in current circulation. Of (66 x 142) mm, to be precise. On one side, there’s smiling Mahatma Gandhi. On another side, signifying the country’s cultural significance, there’s a picture of ‘Rani ki vav’. Rani ki Vav is a stepwell, sited in Patan of Gujarat, on the banks of Saraswati river.
The new note is lavender in color, which might come off as an odd choice for a currency. Why lavender? Is it a flower? It also has many other geometrical designs and patterns across, as is traditional with any Indian currency note.
Of course, many would like it, given its individuality and a feel of freshness. But, if you ask me, the new Rs 100 denomination banknote sucks!
