It is also said that RBI decided to introduce Rs 200 currency in a meeting held last month. Moreover, the new currency will have special features added to it from the security point of view to fight against counterfeiting and black money. As per report, Central bank will change it’s features after every 3-4 years. This will be the second new denomination after Rs 2000 currency note.
