The Reserve Bank of India will shortly issue 10 Rupees denomination banknotes with the Rupee symbol. These banknotes will be very similar to the existing Mahatma Gandhi Series and will carry the signature of Dr. D. Subbarao as Governor RBI, will be without inset letter and will have the year 2011 printed on the reverse.
This banknote follows the issuance of coins with the Rupee symbol recently.
For more details see press release of Reserve Bank of India on 23 September 2011.
