The Rupee Mystery

RsThe Symbol for Indian currency was approved by the Union Cabinet on 15 July 2010.

This symbol was selected from among five shortlisted symbols and is designed by an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) postgraduate D. Udaya Kumar and since this date the quest of displaying this symbol started. Font incorporating the new symbol was launched same day by Foradian Technologies and is available for free Download.

How to Use WebRupee API ?
