Indian Rupee gets a new symbol

The Indian Rupee now has its very own symbol just like other International currencies like Euro, US Dollar, Pound Sterling. The Indian Rupee becomes the fifth currency in the world to have a distinct identity

The Rupee symbol (given below) designed by D Udaya Kumar, an IIT Graduate, is a mixture of the Devanagri Letter 'Ra' and Roman Letter 'R'. Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni said that the symbol will be adopted in a span of six months in the country, and within 18 to 24 months globally and it will feature on computer keyboards as well as softwares
