Putting to rest all the rumours around issuing a new denomination note, the Central government confirmed on Wednesday, August 23 that a new Rs 200 will be issued by the Reserve Bank of India. Starting from August 25, the new denomination notes, orange-saffron in colour, will be available in ATMs and banks. “In exercise of the powers conferred by sub-section (1) of section 24 of the Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934 and on the recommendations of the Central Board of Directors of the Reserve Bank of India, the Central Government hereby specifies the denomination of bank notes of the value of two hundred rupees,” an official government notification said.
Meanwhile, discussion and excitement around the new note has intensified on social media. From people who are confused about the colour of the notes to those who had some hilarious suggestions to the Centre and the RBI now, it has a joke-fest up there on the Internet, especially on the micro-blogging site.
