i don't see anything wrong with the proposal, as mentioned in the article this sounds like the most obvious reason for a symbol

one reason could be India's growing influence on global economy.

First ask the government to issue distinguishable coins, the latest Rs.5 coins get passed off as Re.1 coins many a times, all thanks to the reduction in width.

Seriously! The new Rs.2/- coins are also a disaster, and can easily pass for Re. 1/- coins.

I can see that they are going to come up with something ridiculous and there is going to be a furore and they will silently put this whole idea to sleep .

Probably someone in the Finance ministry is not getting the attention he craves

A quick update: Economic Times has come up with 19 symbols for the rupee, and it's holding a poll for deciding which one the public thinks is the best. That one goes to the Finance Ministry for approval.....

The Economic Times: Business News, Personal Finance, Financial News, India Stock Market Investing, Economy News, SENSEX, NIFTY, NSE, BSE Live, IPO News

I liked the 16th one the best! Voted for it.. Looks like a good combination of the English letter 'R' and the Hindi letter 'र'.... and easy to write too....

Lightbulb New Rupee Symbol

Saw this in the Economic Times.
Not heard of this before. Anyways, I did not like any of the designs suggested. Most of them are complicated to draw. I'm sure there are people here who can come out with a better symbol

Click Here

The Government of India wants your help. It has invited the public to suggest a symbol for the Rupee. Just as the Dollar is universally denoted by $‚ the government thinks the Rupee should also have its own unique symbol that captures a sense of India’s history and culture.Listed below are 19 suggestions from Our team of designers. Please vote for the one you find best. Our Design Team will present all these symbols ‚ along with the Our Design Team viewers’ preference‚ to the Ministry of Finance . And‚ if you don t like these and have a symbol of your own to offer, mail it to us at editoret@indiatimes.co.in So hone your design skills and choose the right symbol for the Rupee.

That's a really great design. I dont think it could have been any better. Congrats to UdayaKumar. Hope this symbol will be soon made available in Unicode and keyboards. I am still not sure of the intend of this logo though. INR is not even listed in the top 20 currencies that we see on various money exchange centers across the world, except probably in Gulf countries. Printing this on currency notes and coins will give it good publicity within the country. It needs to be seen how can they make it recognizable outside.

That brings us to the question of how do we promote a currency? While increased tourist flow may give it some recognizability, in international monetary markets it is all about influence. Even the export juggernaut China could not yet manage to make its currency very popular, may be because it is pegged to USD.

I like it. When can we expect in Unicode? How to get the fonts with it or update once character in the font.
