1. New Numbering Pattern – The banknote numbers will be ascending order in size from left to right. The first three alphanumeric characters are constant in size and then the numerals get increasing in size.
2. Bleed Lines – Angular Bleed Lines on both left and right of the front side of the notes. There would be 4 lines in Rs 100, 5 lines in Rs 500 and 6 lines in Rs 1,000 denominations.
3. Enlarged Identification Mark – The identification mark would be bigger now. There would be Triangle on Rs 100, Circle on Rs 500 and Diamond on Rs 1,000 notes.
