The British dominated in the First World War and at that time the one rupee coin was in vogue as a silver coin. But when the conditions worsened due to war, it became difficult to mold silver coins. Because of this, for the first time, one rupee note came in front of the people, on which the photo of George V was put. This note was printed in England and the value of one rupee note was very less than the rest of the currency.
