  • RTI had already exposed that he is Non-eligible candidate for Indian Rupee Symbol Design Competition as he had violated the Indian Rupee Symbol Design competition guidelines .

    According to guidelines one candidate could send maximum two design entries but he had submitted a total of four designs.

    Second violation of guideline is the symbol itself, as it's not applicable to standard keyboard or Unicode enable.

    Violations are not stopping here according to information and broadcasting minister Ambika Soni 'The new rupee symbol partially resembles the Devanagri ‘Ra’ and Roman capital ‘R’ without the stem coupled with two parallel lines – in line with Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee’s vision for a symbol which reflects and captures Indian ethos and culture.'

    But using roman script/English alphabet in designing the New Indian rupee symbol is also a violation of guideline according to the guideline 'The symbol had to be in the Indian National Language Script'.

    But according to National language Script English is not included in that list till this date.
