Ever Wondered How much does it cost to print Indian currency notes ? Here is the Answer

Do you realize the  amount it expenses to print Indian money notes? Through a RTI inquiry, India Today attempted to discover what amount does it cost to print diverse money notes.

This is what we discovered:

The administration of India spends Rs 4.18 on every Rs 2,000 note. The expense of printing of every Rs 500 note is Rs 2.57 and for Rs 100 note it is Rs 1.51.

While for every Rs 10 take note of the expense brought about by the legislature is Rs 1.01. Curiously, the Rs 20 note is 1 paisa less  expensive than the Rs 10 note.

Denomination     Price Per Thousand pieces (in Rs)                        Price per Note (in Rs)

Rs 10                                         1010                                                                                   1.01

Rs 20                                        1000                                                                                 1

Rs 50                                         1010                                                                                  1.01

Rs 100                                        1510                                                                                 1.51

Rs 500                                        2570                                                                                2.57

Rs 2000                                       4180                                                                                 4.18

We additionally endeavored to discover the contrast between the expenses of printing old demonetised notes and the new Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 notes.

The RTI uncovered that it took Rs 3.09 to print the old Rs 500 note, which implies the new Rs 500 note is 52 paise less expensive than the old Rs 500 note.

In the interim, the Rs 1,000 note was printed at an expense of Rs 3.54. Hence, the printing of the new Rs 2,000 note costs 64 paise more than the printing of the Rs 1,000 note.

Denomination                                                 Price Per Thousand pieces (in Rs)                                  Price per Note (in Rs)

Rs 500                                                                            3090                                                                                  3.09

Rs 1000                                                                          3540                                                                                  3.54
