The Reserve Bank Of India (RBI) is currently working towards changing the outlook of the existing currency notes in the country. The post introducing the all-new 2000, 500 and 200 rupees notes, the Apex Bank will shortly issue the new currency notes of Rs 10 denomination.

In an official statement released on Friday, the central bank revealed the outlook of the new notes. The chocolate brown-coloured note will bear the signature of RBI governor Urjit Patel and depict the country cultural heritage with motifs of the Sun Temple and the Konark.

The new banknotes have many geometrical patterns and designs adding to its eye-catching outlook. Unlike demonetization, the Rs 10 banknotes belonging to the earlier series of currency notes issued by RBI will remain usable as legal tender.

The new Rs 10 banknotes will have 63 mm x 123 mm dimensions and numeral १० will be printed in Devnagari on the front of the note. Along with the Mahatma Gandhi portrait on the front side, the note will bear micro letters 'RBI', 'भारत ', 'INDIA' and '10'.

Apart from a windowed demetalised security thread with inscriptions 'भारत and 'RBI', the note will have Governor's signature with Promise Clause, Ashoka Pillar emblem and the RBI emblem printed towards the right of Mahatma Gandhi's portrait.

The back of Rs 10 note will bear the  year of printing, a Swachh Bharat logo with slogan, a language panel, motif of the Sun Temple and the Konark and the denominational numeral १० written in Devnagari script.
