Indian Rupee gets new symbol

The Indian Rupee has got a new symbol. It has a unique and simple design due to which its origin can be attributed to both the Hindi and the English languages

It is the Hindi alphabet r - र - with a horizontal line across the upper part. Incidentally it is also English alphabet R without the stem and two horizontal lines - one at top and one across its round part

The design was submitted by D. Udaya Kumar, as an entry to a competition organized for this purpose. It was approved by the Union Cabinet of India on 15th July 2010.
