2 decades on, Re 1 notes set to make a comeback - The Times of India

One rupee currency notes are set to make a comeback after two decades, although in a different colour.

Instead of the familiar indigo, the new Re 1 notes will be predominantly pink-green on the front and back in combination with others, a finance ministry notification said. Unlike other currency notes, the Re 1 notes will be issued by the government. As was the norm earlier, the currency note will be signed by the finance secretary, while the Reserve Bank of India governor will continue to sign notes of all other denominations.

Good move. I can't identify difference between coins now a days without looking closely. Thanks to my eye sight, same shape for all coins and faded letters in coins. This should solve problem to some extent.

Since one rupee coin coin is made of very high quality stainless steel they are used for making razor blades in countries like nepal and bangladesh for a handsome profit.
