Use New Rupee Symbol Font With Microsoft Word

A new symbol has been designed for Indian Currency “Rupee” and because only a handful of countries have a dedicated symbol for their currency, therefore this is a proud moment for India. India finalized its new currency symbol on 15 July 2010. This symbol is a blend of the Devanagari (Script used to write Hindi, Marathi, and Nepali) alphabet and roman alphabet ‘R‘ without the stem. Though this symbol will soon be seen on the standard keyboards but no official date has been given out by Goverment of India.

Now, all those eager to use this symbol in their official documents (and/or otherwise) can get his symbol to work on Microsoft Word. Foradian Technologies has come up with a font of the new Rupee symbol, installing which will allow you to use this symbol with Microsoft Word. To get this font on your computer, follow the steps as given below:

  1. Download font from Foradian Technologies.
  2. Install the font by double clicking it (press Install on the window that opens).
  3. Now open Microsoft Word and under “Font” options, you will see “Rupee Foradian“.
  4. Select it and press “`” button located on the top left side of the keyboard.

Enjoy the new rupee symbol and be a proud Indian!

    Few Days Back, Raj. Congress Minister have Exposed “Our Honorable President of India used to clean dishes and cook food for Indra Gandhi’ and because of it she become president of India..

    So now what could we expect in our country …

    To put it rather bluntly, and without any apologies, we are morally and culturally corrupt. From the ordinary cops, to the CM or the PM – we nurture corruption, nepotism and filth in our close proximity without battling an eyelid. Be it moral depravity, social callousness, or human brutality, nothing shocks us. We have accepted the “juggad” as the way of life. If there is “something in it for me” anything goes.

    We are tolerant because we are habituated to live on crumbs and proud of it – never caring to ask if we deserve the rewards that someone else worked for. We, our people, our institutions, are like street dogs – can be easily swayed from our goals by the scent of some easy crumbs that is put in out way.
