After a long wait, the Rupee has a symbol like other major global currencies. Earlier five different design were shortlisted for Indian rupee. The Rupee Symbol includes Both Devnagiri “Ra”and the Roman capital “R” and has two parallel lines running at the top. The two parallel lines denotes the Indian Flag [equal to (=) sign]. The final selected symbol was design by an Indian Institute of Technology postgraduate Mr. D Udaya Kumar. Meanwhile, Foradian Technologies Pvt Ltd from Managalore has created the Rupee Foradian font that can now be downloaded from their website

    I don’t like this symbol. It looks like we have copied the concept of dollar, pound or yen.
