The Rs 200 note was introduced as a near variation of the Renard Series in their currency system. As per this system currency, denominations should be in the ratio of 1:2 and 1: 2.5. This means that a denomination should be twice its preceding denomination. The optimal system of currency should enable the probability of proffering exact change.
