“New design banknotes in other denomination will be introduced in due course,” Minister of State for Finance Arjun Ram Meghwal told the Lok Sabha in a written reply.

“It is the first time that the design of notes is done indigenously. Earlier Rs 500 notes were all designed outside. Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 notes have been entirely designed in-house. So they are much more secure. Scope of counterfeiting is far far lower,” Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das had earlier said
