Cheerup! Because Government of India is going to decide the symbol for Indian Currency today! (24-06-2010). Major Countries already have an unique symbol for their currency. Some are Dollar ($), Yen, Euro, Pound, Sterling etc. I have provided you those symbols in the slide show below.

India is the second fastest growing economy in the world. India’s role in the Global Economy is massively recognized now. So, our government wished to promote a symbol for Indian Currency. The Finance Minister is discussing with the five different types of symbols. These symbols closely resembles hindi letter ‘R’. Out of the five, I like only two of them. You can see the five symbols below:

Five types of Symbols under Consideration

I like the second one and four one. The second one is more professional looking one and it’s very decent and appealing. The fourth one is a stylish one and easy to write. If I am the jury to select the symbol, I will finally go for the second one.These five shortlist contenders for the symbol has been prepared by the Finance Ministry to represent Indian’s ethos and culture – they say. But, I don’t know where it was?!!

But, this is an innovative step. Good Step by the government!
