India: Rupee gets new symbol
The Indian Cabinet on Thursday 15 Jul approved the new symbol for the Indian rupee – an amalgam of the Devnagiri 'Ra' and the Roman capital 'R' without the stem. The symbol was selected from among five shortlisted symbols before the Cabinet. The symbol will not be printed or embossed on currency notes or coins.
