On 16th July’2010, Indian Rupee joined the elite group of currencies which have their own symbol. This symbol has been designed by Bombay IIT Post-Graduate B. Udaya Kumar. Though the symbol has already had many explanations, everyone has accepted it with open arms.
Now that the symbol is out and you can start using it, the trouble comes as to how you can type it? Where all other currencies have this fixed, it will take a while for the Indian Currency to come with a dedicated key with the symbol on keyboards. But does not mean you cannot use it. 😉
A new font designed by Foradian Technologies has been released which can be used to get this font. The steps to install the font are:
That’s all it takes. Use the symbol where-ever you want, its just a key away.
