  • 1. New symbol of the rupee
  • 2. Indian Rupee Sign
    The Indian rupee sign ( ) is the currency sign used for the Indian rupee. The design was presented to the public by the government of India on 15 July 2010. The international three-letter code for the Indian rupee is INR.(according to ISO 4217)
  • 3. Origin
    On 5 March 2009 the Indian government announced a contest to create a sign for the Indian rupee .
    Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee mentioned that the proposed sign should reflect and capture the Indian ethos and culture.
    The selection process has been challenged under the Right to Information Act.
  • 4. Design
    The new sign is a amalgam of the Devanagari letter "र" (ra) and the Latin capital letter "R" without its vertical bar (similar to the R rotunda). The parallel lines at the top (with white space between them) are said to make an allusion to the tricolor Indian flag .
  • 5.
  • 6. Designer
    The original designer of the Indian Rupee Sign is Udaya Kumar who was awarded the prize on 15 July 2010 (2010-07-15) by the Indian Government.
  • 7. Unicode
    On 10 August 2010 the Unicode Technical Committee accepted the proposed code position U+20B9 ​  INDIAN RUPEE SIGN (HTML: ₹) .
    ( Proposed by Indian IT Department within the Unicode range of Devanagari script )
  • 8. Note
    Among currencies with distinctive identities, only the pound sterling has its symbol printed on the notes.
  • 9. Shiro Rekha
    The use of Shiro Rekha (the horizontal top line) in Devanagari script is unique to India Devanagari script is the only script where letters hang from the top line and does not sit on a baseline. The symbol preserves this unique and essential feature of our Indian script which is not seen in any other scripts in the world. It also clearly distinguishes itself from other symbols and establishes a sign of Indian origin. It explicitly states the Indianess of the symbol .
  • 10. Tricolor
    The two horizontal lines with an equal negative white space (imaginary space) between them create a foreground and background effect of three strips (tricolor). The strips subtly represent the tricolor of our Indian national agying at the top .
  • 11. Equality sign
    The horizontal lines also denote the arithmetic sign ‘equal to’. For a common man, a quick indicator of his/her countries economy is the comparison of currency values.
    The equality sign also signifies a balanced economy, our economy should be secured and stable forever .
  • 12. Simple Form
    The symbol is designed with minimal of three strokes. The simple and clean form gives it a high recall value and strengthens its legibility It also makes it very easy to write, construct reproduce and design
    Embedding Devanagari and Latin script makes it convenient to write for both national and international users
  • 13. Reverse Effect
    The symbol works very well with inverse color It does not affect the legibility of symbol even at smaller sizes.
  • 14. Balance
    The left inclination of the letter ‘Ra’ is visually
    balanced using the two horizontal strokes
    inclined on the opposite direction. Both the
    visual forces are balanced to make the symbol
    stable and firm. The symbol stands on a single
    stroke without any imbalance
  • 15. Symbol For Paisa
    The symbol for paisa can also be designed using the same concept. It would be in harmonious with the proposed rupee symbol as one family .
