RBI to issue Rs 500 banknotes with inset letter 'E'
Mumbai, Mar 21 (UNI) Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will shortly issue Rs 500 denomination banknotes with the inset letter 'E' in both numbering panels in the Mahatma Gandhi series-2005.
A press release issued here today said the notes will also have additional and new security features bearing the signature of RBI Governor Dr Y V Reddy.
