Indian Rupee

The Indian Rupee is the official currency of India. We use both types of currency - coins and paper notes.

Who makes these coins and notes? Why is the name Reserve Bank of India mentioned on the currency notes?

The Government of India (भारत सरकार) and RBI - Reserve bank of India (भारतीय रिजर्व बैंक) issues the currency coins and notes.

The Rupees are available in different denominations. Denomination means the exact amount on the currency coin or note.
