The symbol has not been chosen yet and I have seen no pictures of the candidates.

A fantastic design. Unfortunately the contest was open only to indian nationals.

other symbols...

Strange - according to that list, the Indian Rupee already has a currency symbol: So that one is not used much?

Side note: Part of the list is funny anyway. "Standard dollar sign is generally used to signify peso amounts"? Anybody from a peso country may say that in some countries the "standard peso sign is used to signify dollar amounts" ...

Here you will find one such forum. Will revert with more in the next few days. This one is not very active and also beware of viruses.

This is the first that I have heard of this symbol. Currently the rupee is abriviated as Rs. or at best IRs. (Rupees or Indian Rupees).

I do not know from where they have based the information. Would that also mean that the info on other currencies could be faulty?

They haven't disclosed the designs yet.As far as I know,the final design has already been selected (that's what I read in local news paper),and it has been sent to our finance minister for final approval 8) News paper also says that new design will start appearing from March,after the budget.So have to wait till then..
