The design of banknotes to be issued will be similar in all aspects to the Rs 20 banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi Series-2005 issued earlier.

RBI reported “The Reserve Bank will shortly issue Rs 20 denomination banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi Series-2005, with inset letter S in both the number panels, bearing the signature of Raghuram G Rajan, Governor, RBI. All banknotes in the denomination of Rs 20 issued by the Bank in the past will continue to be legal tender.”
