Someone left this behind in a tip jar but the cashiers did not want it so I got it. It is the 1996 series 100 Rupees bill. The Inset A is the place it was printed, although not fully known it is suspected to be from the Mysore (Karnataka) printing press.
The inset A is under the top serial numbers. If blank then it would be an earlier issue maybe June 1996 when these notes were first introduced. These are undated but can be identified as an early note by the Governor C Rangarajan at the bottom center. Since 2005 they have added the series date.
On the left hand side is a black triangle that is made with intaglio printing so it is raised slightly. This is to aid the visually impaired and each Indian note has a different geometric shape to identify the denomination.
Here's the stats for this bill...
Type/Country: 100 Rupees / India
Value: $1.67 in Fine
