    The existing rupee signs and their respective glyphs will stay in The Unicode Standard and ISO/IEC 10646 as they are.


    The stability of character encoding standards is for good reasons close to sacred.

    So you're saying they'd be better off just putting it at U+20B9? :-)



    With reference to the unicode Currency Chart, 4 Rupee Sign already been there, they are
    20A8 Rs RUPEE SIGN
     09F3 ৳ bengali rupee sign
    0AF1 ૱ gujarati rupee sign
    0BF9 ௹ tamil rupee sign

    Now as per Govt. Of India rupee sign has been standardised,

    So what will happens to the above mentioned glyphs and their unicode values?

    Why can't use any of the unicode value for the new rupee sign?
