Symbol for Indian Rupee

Major currencies of the world e.g. $ (US Dollar), £ (Pound Sterling), ¥ (Yen) and the € (Euro) have an Identification symbol. The Government of India also proposes to have a symbol for the Indian rupee to be selected through public competition.

They have invited all Resident Indians (both Professional artists and Non-professionals) to participate in a Competition for design of the 'Symbol for Indian Rupee'.
