Five designs had been shortlisted by the government after an all-India contest for the new Indian Rupee symbol. Decision was to be made by 24th June but I guess the deadline is now deferred.

In my view the design should be easy to write regardless of its visual appeal for those of us who maintains accounts like myself. We have to write 'Rs.' some hundred times a day.


Now if you notice design 3, it'll take 5 pen strokes to complete and design 2 will take 4 strokes; that's why these are strict no no in my opinion. Design 1 is easiest in the lot but downright ugly and almost unintelligible. That's why I would want either design 4 or 5 :)
