The rupee symbol quickly got famous and replaced the traditional style where people used Rs. to denote rupees. Thanks to Dr. Udaya Kumar Dharmalingam who designed this symbol which looks classy and matches perfectly with the standards of other countries. While this symbol is being used by people all over the world, many of us still go through trouble while typing it in any kind of editing software like MS-Word which is widely used by people who take notes or documents.

And it would be troublesome to search online just to copy this symbol.
Anyways, without wasting time, for the people who just want a simple way to get this symbol just copy the symbol from here and you are done.
