Indian Currency

The currency used in India is the Indian rupee (INR). The rupee is divided into 100 paise. The name ‘rupee’ derives from the Sanskrit word rupya, meaning ‘silver coin’.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is the central bank of India and regulates the Indian banking system. It was established in 1935 by the Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934. The RBI is responsible for issuing currency, maintaining monetary stability, and regulating the credit and investment system in India. It also acts as a controller of credit by influencing the volume of money supply in the economy.

In addition, the RBI provides banking services to the central and state governments and regulates the interest rates on government securities. As the regulator of the banking system, the RBI supervises and controls the activities of banks and financial institutions in India. It also plays an important role in developing and promoting the growth of the Indian economy.

Currently, RBI issues banknotes in denominations of 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 2000 rupees. The value of 500 and 2000 rupee banknotes together account for 87.1% of the total value of all banknotes in circulation in 2022.

For instance, the latest 500 rupee banknote features the Red Fort, while the most recent 2000 rupee banknote features the Mars Orbiter Mission space probe. As India continues to grow economically, new denominations of banknotes will likely be introduced in the future.

There are currently six coins in circulation, with denominations of 50 paise, 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20 rupees. Of these, the 1, 2 and 5 rupee coins make up the majority in both volume and value. In fact, in 2022 they accounted for 83.5 per cent of all coins by volume and 75.8 per cent by value.
