Finally, the Rupee will have a symbol like the Dollar ($) or the Euro (€) or the Pound (£). The Cabinet today finalised the design for the Rupee.

IIT post-graduate Uday kumar's entry has been selected out of five shortlisted designs as the new symbol for the Indian Rupee.

The government had organised a symbol design competition with a prize money of Rs 2.5 lakh. Five designs were shortlisted from a competition and all new notes will bear the design finally approved.

The growing influence of the Indian economy in the global space is said to have prompted this move that will result in the Indian rupee joining the select club of global currencies like the US dollar, the British Pound, European Euro and Japanese Yen that have unique symbols.

The abbreviation for the Indian Rupee, 'Re' or 'Rs' is used by India's neighbours Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

Finally, It took 63yrs to get the symbol.
Politicians (the way they are behaving) will tear apart the value of currency in the next decade.
Take shelter by owning some Gold (in any form - Jwellery, Bullion, Certificate, ETF, Physical trust, Gold mining stock, Gold exploration stock, etc).
A currency crisis is coming in the next decade.

I was not knowing that they will shell out 2.5 lac otherwise I would have also tried my hand. Now we dont have that symbol on keyboard, when that is going to come. :(

Now all Politicians & bureaucrats will make crores of Rupees, replacing all Keyboards, with new one - just for the Rupee symbol.
Such a waste of Govt. resources.
