A bank employee counts Indian currency notes in Mumbai on June 24, 2010. India is on the hunt for a symbol to represent its rupee currency in a bid to match the US dollar, British pound, Japanese yen and the European euro. A shortlist of five designs has been drawn up based around the letter R as represented in both the Roman alphabet and Hindi script.
