Why we need our own currency symbol

3)Strengthens our economy

4)Favours  the global investments and recognition

5)Increases the economical activities.

6) Positively affects the FII and  theFDI.

The new symbol has to be accepted by the Unicode Consortium’s Unicode Technical Committee that is responsible for the development and maintenance of the Unicode Standard,Probably  it will be adopted within 18-24 months globally.The new sign is a amalgam of the Devanagari “र” and the Roman capital “R” without the stem. The parallel lines at the top (with white space between them) make an allusion to the tricolor Indianflag

The symbol will also be included in the Indian Standards, viz. 13194:1991 – ISCII (Indian Script Code for Information Interchange), through an amendment to the existing list by the Bureau of Indian Standards.
