The note will bear signature of Shaktikanta Das, secretary, finance ministry.
Other currency notes bear the signature of the RBI governor. The numbering will be in black at the right hand bottom portion of the note. On the reverse side, the year 2017 is mentioned. There is also a representation of the one rupee coin with the rupee symbol having a floral design and the surrounding design consists of a picture of the “sagar samrat” oil exploration platform.
