Last year, Government of India standardized the official symbol of India currency Rupee and made the India Rupee one of the few currencies to join an elite group of countries like US dollar, euro, which have a distinct symbol of currency.


Microsoft has released an update to support the new currency symbol for the Indian Rupee in Windows Vista, in Windows Server 2008, in Windows 7 and in Windows Server 2008 R2. The new Rupee symbol is already a part of Unicode version 6.0. This update includes font support, locale changes, and keyboard support.
