Found this one on Jayanth‘s twitter update:
The Government of India is “Of the people, by the people and for the people” and they are all set to prove this right.
Government of India is now seeking your help to decide what the symbol of a Rupee looks like. Are you bored of writing Rs or INR, or just want your Rupee to look as cool as a $, then go to this page and choose one of the options and suggest your choice, remember every opinion counts.
They have about 19 symbols to choose from and if you think none of them are worth being the symbol of Indian Rupee, and if you believe you have a cooler design for the Indian Rupee, go ahead design one and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
See some of the symbols sent by ET readers.
You never know if your design’s the lucky one to be selected as our Nations Rupee Design.
This also means that once this is finalized, we have one more character added to the keyboard and all the software code need to be updated, so maintenance projects are sure to benefit from these 😉
Update: The result of the competition are out and this image was selected as the Indian Rupee Symbol.
