New Delhi: Green is globally recognised as the colour of cash, but when it comes to India, one cannot limit its currency in a single colour. Seems like the country that believes in ‘unity in diversity’ loves diverse colours, even when it comes to money.
On our way to attain a rainbow currency, after pink and yellow, we now have lavender notes and Indian currency is being circulated in full spectrum. The brand new Rs100 currency notes were launched in the shade of lavender. It joins magenta, fluorescent blue, chocolate brown, bright yellow.
The old Rs100 notes will continue to be legal even after the new ones come into circulation next month. Pictures of the new note have already created quite a stir on social media.
During the demonetisation in November 2016, the Rs100 notes were left untouched. While Rs500 and Rs1,000
notes were banned, new Rs2,000 and Rs500 notes, in magenta and stone grey, went introduced into our wallets.
This was followed by bright yellow and orange Rs200 notes, fluorescent blue Rs50 notes and chocolate brown Rs10 notes.
Here’s how Twitterati reacted to the colour spectrum of Indian currencies:
After Demonetization, Modi Gave us Pink Money, Yellow Money, even Lavender Money.
But where is the Black Money?😒
