New Indian Rupee Symbol Design Hit By Corruption

According to DNA India Newspaper their are many flaws in selection of rupee symbol.

Indian broadcasting and information minister Ambika Soni,told the media that the cabinet’s discussions did not touch upon claims of flaws in the selection process.

When asked about RTI activist claims about the selection process, a member of the jury, who did not want to be identified, said the jury was not aware of the RTI application. (talk)14:43, 27 July 2010

'The other currencies with a symbol...' A very odd claim. Canadian dollars, Australian dollars, Barbadian dollars, Colombian pesos, Mexican pesos, Guernsey pounds, Falklands pounds... etc., etc. (talk)15:36, 15 July 2010 (talk)15:39, 15 July 2010
