RBI to issue new Rs 50 bank notes
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will shortly issue Rs 50 denomination bank notes.
An official statement said here today, the new banknotes will be in the Mahatma Gandhi Series-2005, bearing the signature of Dr D Subbarao, Governor, Reserve Bank of India, and the year of printing 2012 printed on the reverse of the Banknote.
