beyondbrics | FT.com, 15/07/2010, extracto/excerpt.-

For those of us still fumbling to find the € symbol on our keyboards, today was a bad news day. Computer and mobile keyboards in India (and possibly around the globe) will soon be adding another new button - the rupee key.

Today a jury selected by the Indian government unveiled a new rupee symbol (pictured) to rival the internationally recognised the US dollar ($), the euro (€), the UK pound (£) and the Japanese Yen (¥).

The decision to create a new currency symbol reflects India’s aspiration to become a global player on international financial markets, in particular at a time when the Indian rupee has been strengthening against all major currencies.
