Indian Sites – National News
I wrote on my blog on Jul 15, 2010 about the:
New Currency Symbol of Resurgent India
Fifth currency in the world to have a distinct identity.
I also wrote that the government will try that the symbol is adopted within six months in the country and globally within 18 to 24 months.
But you need not wait that long. You could download the new rupee symbol on to your computer as a rupee font right now and use it. Indian print media have already started using the rupee symbol.
Mangalore based Foradian Technologies Pvt Ltd has created a font called Rupee Foradian. Users can download the new symbol from their blog for free.
The company created a vector image of the new rupee symbol and mapped the grave accent symbol, the key just above the tab button on your keyboard, with it. This keystroke was chosen because it is rarely used.
– From Foradian Technologies Blog
Download the Free Rupee Font Version 2.0 from Foradian Blog and enjoy.
You will also find various tips on the blog like how to use it in MS Office, Microsoft Excel, Mac, IBM Lotus Notes and Symphony, and Linux.
For your convenience, I am adding a video from YouTube contributed by a 13 years old kid, Anup. He shows you how to download and install the new rupee symbol in your computer, and then use it in your wordprocessor.
