New Indian Rupee Symbol in HTML Websites

In this post I will explain how to display Indian Rupee symbol in HTML pages. Before that let’s go to history of  Indian Currency Symbol(₹).

The Union Cabinet approved Indian currency rupee symbol on 15 July 2010. And this Rupee symbol designed by Uday Kumar, Assistant Professor IIT Gauhathi.

It’s a combination of Devanagari Letter “र”(ra) and Latin Capital ‘R’ without vertical bar.(₹)

There are mainly two ways to display the Rupee Symbol I will explain One by One.

Just use  ₹ this code in HTML page to display Rupee Symbol. It will display symbol as shown below

One more method is by using Unicode Character of Indian Rupee Symbol.On August 10th 2010 Unicode Technical Committee accepted the Code position as U+20B9  Use the code ₹  in HTML page to display rupee symbol

But the problem with this method is Unicode will only be converted on the systems with Unicode version 6.0. The user with lower version of Unicode system may not able to see the Rupee symbol.

And more method is to use some third party Web API like Web Rupee. But I will not prefer to use this method as we have standard codes to display rupee symbol. It’s like for displaying ‘&’ in our webpages using some external library.

The above codes are widely accepted and used by many people around the world show Indian Rupee symbol(₹) in websites.
