Indian Rupee gets a new currency Symbol

Indian Currency

Today, it’s a day to be proud of for Indians, we have a new symbol like other developed nations in the world. There were five designs among which this one was selected. The five designs also found a panel of five members to pass through the selection process. Though the five members had to select one person who was to decide which one to pickup as the new currency symbol for the Indian Rupee. A decent work was done by Mr. Udaya Kumar, an IIT Post-Graduate in selecting the Devanagari + Roman version of the Indian Rupee.
