Download Indian Rupee Symbol Font, Type Indian Rupee Symbol
By on July 18th, 2010

The Indian Rupee Symbol has been finalized and has made History. However, typing the Indian Rupee symbol is not possible yet, because of its uniqueness and it not being part of the keyboard alphabets yet.

Indian Rupee Currency Symbol

Nevertheless, you can always download Indian Rupee Symbol wallpapers for your desktop. These can be downloaded and used on PC, Mac and Linux based desktops. However, if you want to type the Indian Rupee symbol on your PC, you can now do it use the Indian Rupee   Font.

First of all you will need to download the Indian Rupee Symbol from here and install it to your PC. You can read our guide on installing fonts in Linux or also learn how to install fonts on Windows and Mac (see end of article). Once you have installed the Rupee Font, you need to select the font and press the “`” key on the keyboard to insert the rupee symbol into documents.

Right now, the Indian Rupee Symbol will only be viewable on PCs which have the Indian Rupee font installed. You can always create images of the symbol to use on your website. I have embedded some tutorials on how to type the Indian Rupee symbol on your computer after you have installed the form.

    Here is a better alternative font.

    In this font, the rupee sign is mapped to Unicode Rs symbol, so if the font is not present in the PC where a document containing this symbol is viewed, then the old Rs sign will be shown, which is better then showing a accent sign in place of Rs sign.

    Hi,

    new symbol is good for india. But this symbolised values does not sums, or multiplies up the figures in excel as (`) is a character which excel function does not reads , just like $ pound symbol or euro.

    A little more effort is required and we can surely achieve.

    This is good for our country but should be different in looking. It is totally copy of dollar sign.
    I will try to make different sign.

    Thanks

  • Nitin Gupta

    This is good for our country, now we can also use our rupee symbol. But it is totally copy of Dollar sign. It should be different.
    I will try to make different symbol of rupee.

      How is it totally a copy of the Dollar sign?
      In fact if thought with a perspective to match the symbols then even Euro and Pound looks similar to the Dollar and probably to each other.
      The symbol as per my view very much reflects the feel of India in its look and at the same time is easy to put it on paper.

    its working fine, but how can I use it if I am using a font different from Rupee Foradian?
    For example, if I am using Times New Roman or Arial Narrow, can I still use the Rupee symbol?
