  3. An errata:- Rs. 500 note was first introduced in 1987.

    The design was first changed in 1992. The major design change was in Year 2000, along with the introduction of Rs. 2000. Since year 2000, 1000/- and 500/- Rs. note design, which looked similar to each other, was not changed, until the demonetization in late 2016.

    When they were introduced Rs. 500/- and Rs. 1000/- note carried lot of value, but unfortunately Rupee value, by 2016, has fallen by more than 8 times since 1987 and nearly 3 times since 2000.

    I sincerely feel that Government of India should not have introduced Rs. 2000 note. Rather they should have merely abolished Rs. 1000 note, and printed Rs. 500/- and Rs. 200/- notes instead.
    Sincerely,
    Vijay Gautam
