Revised Design:
There were minor changes to the design of the Rs 20 note. Namely

Ascending font: The numerals in both the number panels will be in ascending size from left to right while the first three alpha-numeric characters (prefix) will remain constant in size.
Intaglio printing: The numeral “20”, RBI seal, Mahatma Gandhi’s portrait, RBI legend, Guarantee and promise clause, Governor’s signature, Ashoka Pillar emblem which were hitherto printed in intaglio (raised printing) are now being printed in offset (without any raised printing). Further, rectangular identification mark on the left of the banknote has been removed.
Colour: While there is no change in the colour at the reverse, the colour at the obverse is lighter (due to removal of intaglio printing).
Latent Image: The vertical band on the right side of the Mahatma Gandhi’s portrait hitherto contained a latent image showing the denominational numeral “20”.The latent image was visible only when the banknote was held horizontally at eye level. This feature is no longer present.

There is no change in the reverse of the banknote.
