'Will Rs 200 note have a chip?' Twitter gets curious about viral image of the note

While some are extremely inquisitive some have mentioned their preference as this image of Rs 200 note goes viral on social media

Since the time Prime Minister Narendra announced his decision to demonetise Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes and introduced new Rs 2000 and Rs 500 notes, speculations are rife that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will soon come up with new Rs 1000 notes with advanced security features. While it is still not certain if the government will come up with new Rs 1000 notes,  pictures of Rs 200 notes are creating a buzz on the social media network.

However, since the government has not given any official confirmation, it is still unclear whether the pictures of Rs 200 notes that are doing rounds on the social media are real or fake. The veracity of the picture cannot be ascertained and the pictures might be photoshopped. The note looks similar to the new Rs 2000 notes except that this one is in blue colour. Apparently, these notes are going to hit the market in the month of June.

Some of the reports suggest that RBI has already proposed the idea to introduce these notes but the Central government is yet to give its approval. “Rs 200 currency note is in the pipeline. But, unless it is notified by the central government, making a dye (block), working on security features and printing process of Rs 200 would not take place. So this time, RBI would implement its plan only after the Centre’s notification,” India Today quoted a source as saying.

Here’s how Twitter reacted after the picture of Rs 200 note surfaced on social media:

Some applauded the move

And some had suggestions…Netaji’s picture on the Rs 200 note instead of Mahatma Gandhi?

Some are keenly waiting for that ‘chip’ in the note

Whether it’s fake or not is yet to be decided, but people have already started loving the new note.

Oh wait! This one is not in just one colour. You have options to choose from as well

Some of them have put forth their preferences as well

We are eagerly waiting to get our hands on these notes. Make it quick plisss!
