India : Issue of ? 50 banknotes without inset letter, with numerals in ascending size in number panels, and without intaglio printing The Res.

The Reserve Bank of India will shortly issue ? 50 denomination banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi Series-2005, without inset letter in both the number panels, bearing signature of Dr. Raghuram G. Rajan, Governor, Reserve Bank of India, and the year of printing '2016' printed on the reverse of the banknote.

The design and security features of these banknotes will be similar to the banknotes of ? 50 denomination with the ascending font of numerals in both the number panels issued earlier in Mahatma Gandhi Series- 2005, except the following:

Intaglio printing

The numeral 50, RBI seal, Mahatma Gandhis portrait, RBI legend, Guarantee and promise clause, Governors signature, Ashoka Pillar emblem which were hitherto printed in intaglio (raised printing) are now being printed in offset (without any raised printing). Further, square-shaped identification mark on the left of the banknote has been removed.


While there is no change in the colour at the reverse, the colour at the obverse is lighter (due to removal of intaglio printing).

Latent Image.

The vertical band on the right side of the Mahatma Gandhis portrait hitherto contained a latent image showing the denominational numeral 50. The latent image was visible only when the banknote was held horizontally at eye level. This feature is no longer present.

Reverse There is no change in the reverse of the banknote.
