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.
