Indian rupees to pounds Sterling

One Indian rupee (₹) can be subdivided into 100 paisa, although paisa coins are rarely used due to their low value and the smallest unit of currency you're likely to come across is the ₹1 coin. There are seven denominations of Indian rupee banknotes in frequent circulation: ₹10, ₹20, ₹50, ₹100, ₹200, ₹500, and ₹200; and three frequently-used coin denominations: ₹1, ₹2 and ₹5.

The current series of Indian rupee banknotes in circulation is the 'Mahatma Gandhi New Series' which was introduced by the Reserve Bank of India in 2016. Each banknote in the series features a portrait of Mahatma Gandhi; the Father of the Nation and an iconic leader of India's independence movement. The reverse side of each note depicts various Indian motifs and elements. For example, the ₹10 note displays the image of the Konark Sun Temple, representing India's rich cultural heritage, while the the ₹20 note features an image of the Ellora Caves which are renowned for their architectural marvels. The Rani Ki Vav - an intricately designed stepwell located in the state of Gujarat - is featured on the ₹100 note, and the Mangalyaan (India's Mars Orbiter) is featured on the ₹2000 note.
