16 must observe Identifications in a 500 Rupee Note

I’m going to discuss here about the original 500 rupee Note & it’s a Mahatma Gandhi New Series.
The size of the note is 66mm x 150 mm.

I will try to cover all the minute details on 500 rupee note. I will start with the front side of the note, and that too from the extreme left-hand side.

Reader’s Note:
It is to be noted that all the identifications mentioned in the article are suggested by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). So, observe all the 16 steps to find the original note, my dear friends.

If you see from the extreme left, firstly look at this area from the bottom (See the image below). If seen from long, you will see 2 White color lines will appear here.

Now, turn your note in a clockwise direction to see it. There you can see the number 500, which is an identification number.

The number 500 will look like an English letter but it’s not our regular number system format. Its a Devanagari script. Your note value in that script will be mentioned in that number system format.
(You can see this in the below image)

If you look here you can see the Father of the Nation, Shri Mahatma Gandhi’s photo appears in the middle. It is another identification.

Now, I’m going to show you an exciting identification.

If you see here, there is a green color dot line thread which is vertically next to Shri. Mahatma Gandhi. If you see that line from a distance, it looks like a Green color line.

But if you turn the note slightly to the side, then only you can see that the thread of the window will change from green color to dark blue color. This is a very important identification.

Coming to another IDentification, If you look next to the thread, you can see a Guarantee clause. It contains the RBI Governor’s Signature along with a Promise clause will also be visible on the note.

You can also see the “RBI Logo” and all these identifications tell you that you have the original note with you.

Now, Let’s find another interesting identification mark on a 500 note.

If you notice there is a blank space on the right side of the signature.
Right..!

If you observe that space, you can see Shri. Mahatma Gandhi’s photo can be visible transparently. And also, the note’s value of Rs.500/- will also appear as Watermark.

Do remember this.

I thought this bunk guy, checked that only..!!
What do you say, guys… Comment below..!!

If you look at the right bottom 500 rupee note, you can see a 6-digit numeric series that appears as Lowercase to Uppercase numbers.

On top of the Lower case to Upper case letters, you can see 500 in a glittering green color. If you turn your note at a little 5-degree angle, you can see that 500 turns into a Blue color. This is also another key identification.

Look for the Ashok Pillar on the right side of the 500 rupee note.

For blind people, If you look at the right side here, you will see Rs.500 in a small circle.

When you see on extreme right and left middle of 500 rupee note, you can see some crossed lines.As per RBI, a 500 rupee note will have Five bleed lines.

How these bleed lines are helpful..!!
These bleed lines are useful for blind people to identify the note value as a 500 rupee note.
5 Bleed lines = Rs.500/- Note.

Coming to 100 rupee note, it will have 4 bleed lines.

Get your note and check now..!!
