New Currency Symbol of India- Fifth currency in the world to have a distinct identity. The Indian Rupee has previously been denoted as INR with no symbol of its own. From now on the Indian Rupee has its own unique symbol to identify it.
The Indian government will try that the symbol is adopted within six months in the country and globally within 18 to 24 months.
Knowing the way Indian government works, it might take some time before you can actually use the new rupee symbol in your mails or word documents.
Mangalore based Foradian Technologies Pvt Ltd has created a font called Rupee Foradian. Users can download the new symbol from their blog for free.
But since this is not a standard font, avoid using it when sending a document to someone else, because if the person doesn’t have the font installed on their system, they will only see a ~ symbol.
But you need not wait that long. You could download the new rupee symbol on to your computer as a rupee font right now and use it. Indian print media have already started using the rupee symbol.
The company created a vector image of the new rupee symbol and mapped the grave accent symbol, the key just above the tab button on your keyboard, with it. This keystroke was chosen because it is rarely used.
Download the Free Rupee Font Version 2.0 from Foradian Blog and enjoy.
