I will suggest do not refer above blog, they provided proprietary
storage solution by Mapping New rupee symbol on "~" in fonts. That is
why the location is that.

Standardization for location of keyboard location for Rupee symbol is
done last year itself. AltGr (right alt key) +4 is the location. See
[1] and [2]
This location is decided for "Enhanced Inscript standard" and Qwerty
*en_IN* layout.

I have not heard any news regarding mapping Rupee symbol on US English
layout. I think US International keyboard layout is right one for
discussion. [3]
