The most used abbreviation for the Indian Rupee has been Rs. or for international purposes, INR. India has not had a symbol for its currency like $ for dollar, and this has now been corrected.
Like most Indians I am very happy that this has happened. I am trying to get the symbol incorporated in my keyboard so that I can start using it in my communications.
India is also blessed with some remarkable cartoonists who portray India at its best. One of them is Morparia.
He has come up with his own version of the symbol and I doff my topi to him for this brilliant cartoon.
