Mumbai: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Tuesday said it would shortly put into circulation new-series Rs100 denomination bank notes bearing the signature of its Governor, Shaktikanta Das.

The RBI will shortly issue Rs 100 denomination bank notes in Mahatma Gandhi (new) series bearing the signature of Das, the central bank said in a release.

The design of these notes is similar in all respects to the Rs100 bank notes in circulation currently.

All bank notes in the denomination of Rs100 issued by the RBI in the past will continue to be legal tender, the RBI said.
