Lenovo will incorporate the rupee symbol in all its products in the next few months.

This incorporation of the new rupee symbol on keyboards will facilitate a wide usage of the symbol and help the rupee join the elite club of globally accepted currencies such as the dollar, euro and yen, the statement said.

This initiative is in line with the Government of India’s regulations for PC manufacturers to make the new rupee symbol a standard introduction in all PCs sold in India.

For this, Lenovo worked closely with Microsoft in designing software solution for enabling the new rupee symbol as stipulated in the BIS (Bureau of Industry Standards) guidelines, it added.
