Rupee Symbol will be announced today – 5 of them are already shortlisted from thousands of entries that were received last year when the Government of India went public with the competition to design new rupee symbol.
Following are the 5 symbols from which 1 of them will be decided. The designer who will be the potential winner will get a whooping purse of 2.5 lakh from the Government. However, he will have to surrender the copyrights for the design to Indian Government.
Here are Top 5 designs shortlisted for Rupee Symbol
With this new advancement, India will join select group of countries who will have their own Currency symbol like US Dollar ($) and the Japanese Yen (¥). This will also ensure that Indian Rupee will have a unique sign that will be recognized worldwide.
If I was on the panel of decision makers, I would go for number 2, Where the design stands for “R” in devnagari script and 2 horizontal dashes that denote a currency.
Which one is your favorite ?
We will bring you the winner of Rupee symbol as soon as it is made public – so hang in there :)
