New Rs 100 notes are the newest among the series of colourful notes announced by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). On Thursday, they announced lavender coloured Rs 100 notes featuring Motif of 'Rani ki Vav' which is a stepwell located in Gujarat on the reverse. And Twitterati could not stop talking about the government's obsessions with colours. Lavender has been trending on Twitter since then with social media users jokingly questioning the government's choice of colours for notes lately.

The earlier Rs 100 notes will continue to be in the market along with the newly released ones. While the supply of new design is currently less, it will gradually increase in the future. The dimension of the new banknote will be 66 mm × 142 mm which means it is smaller than the one in circulation. All the existing Rs 100 notes will continue to be legal tender.

Here is the newly launched Rs 100 note:

And here is how Twitterati responded:

Know your colours!

RBI should have had a Twitter poll before finalising colours, no?

Missing Rs 1,000 notes?

"The Reserve Bank of India will shortly issue Rs 100 denomination banknotes in the Mahatma Gandhi (New) Series," said the central bank. The new Rs 100 notes will have the signature of RBI Governor Urjit Patel. After demonetisation in November 2017 that scrapped Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, RBI introduced new notes in denominations of Rs 50, Rs 200, Rs 500 and Rs 2,000.
