Note Printing Press: The name of the currency of India is 'Rupee'. The history of this rupee is years old. Once upon a time only coins were in circulation, but with time the shape, size and shape of Indian currency kept changing. Paper notes were printed for the first time in India in 1861 during the British era. After independence, the responsibility of printing notes was handed over to the Reserve Bank of India.
