The Reserve Bank Of India will soon release the new lavender colored Rs. 100 banknote. The central bank RBI said recently, “The new banknote of Rs. 100 denomination will be of the Mahatma Gandhi (New) Series”. A new thing in the note is that it will have a motif of Rani Ki Vav – a heritage site located in Gujarat – on the reverse side.

This is the first note in India which is made of entirely domestic materials. “This note is designed in India, printed on currency paper made in India. The ink is made in India and even the security features have been made by Indian companies. This is a dream come true,” said Kaza Sudhakar retired managing director of Bharatiya Reserve Bank Note Mudran (BRBNMPL), which prints banknotes.

But before launching the note of 100 in the market, the colour of the new note became the butt crack of jokes on the social media and people are telling gaga over the colours of different recent released notes like of Rs. 50, Rs.200, Rs, 2000- blue, orange and pink respectively.

Netizens even compared the new currency with the famous board game called Monopoly. For the Uninitiated, Monopoly is a game in which fake money cards are used in the same colour as India’s new currency.

Here’s take a look at what we are talking about:
