On 15th July 2010 Indian Union Cabinet approved new symbol for Indian rupee - an amalgam of the Devnagiri 'Ra' and the Roman capital 'R' without the stem, designed by an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) postgraduate D. Udaya Kumar.
It might take nearly a year or two for the symbol to find permanent place on electronics.
For those who can not wait till then, people at Foradian Technologies developed a font called Rupee basically a vector image which can be downloaded and used for free on Windows, Linux and MAC systems.
