FinMin Rupee Symbol Design Contest Update

I had posted about this contest by Finance Ministry of India to design a symbol for Indian Rupee (like $ for US Dollar etc). I got a lot of comments and designs on the post. Some were concerned over the status of the contest.

Fin Min has released a press release on the status of the contest. It says it has received many applications and a first list of short-listed entries would be posted on the website very soon.

Great news.

Addendum:

The first list of short-listed candidates is out and is here.

  3. KAY SHIV Says:

    But, why no trace of it on the Ministry website?

    • Amol Agrawal Says:

      There is a mention on the home page. In the Recent Updates box on the homepage, the third link is an update on the contest. The links come one at a time so you have to wait

      • KAY SHIV Says:

        Fine, but that seems to be a late correction carried out by the Ministry – but that too clumsily done. Moreover, mention in the Updates-scroll-window is a temporary measure which may vanish anytime (Does ‘Recent Updates’ has archives?). Otherwise, the main circular doesn’t have a hyperlink for it on the home page even now, as pointed out by many in their comments on this topic in your blog. And one drew a blank on entering ‘finmin.nic.in’ although suggested in the very circular on the ‘Symbol Competition’. I am subject to correction, and will be happy.

      • Yasmin Says:

        I happened to accidentally bump into your blog and got interested in the Rupee Symbol thing going on. From the string of comments and after a visit to the Finmin website I have reason to believe that the Finance Ministry is not very professional (mired in babudom not well tuned to IT technology?) in dealing with such a matter – which in its own right is of great significance and consequence. As pointed out by Kay Shiv proper mention of the Symbol Competition is missing in the website – how careless? Even four months after the closing date they are yet to come out with the list of the entries which are in order in the first place. So long for just the preliminary scrutiny? Does that mean that there is no well oiled system in place or a special cell for the purpose, and things are taken very casually? Hope will be proved wrong and things improve.

    Now, can you locate the Rupee symbol thing on the finmin website, Amolji?

  10. KAY SHIV Says:

    At last the first list of eligible applicants for the competition has been hosted on the Ministry website on 1st September 2009 as an hyperlink to the ‘update’ which ran for some time since 24.7.09 (the same has reappeared without the date) under “RECENT UPDATES”. This first list has nearly 3000 applicants. more are expected in subsequent list(s).

  11. First list of FinMin Rupee Design Contest « Mostly Economics Says:

    […] list of FinMin Rupee Design Contest By Amol Agrawal Kay Shiv points on the Fin Min Rupee Design Contest post that first list of shortlisted candidates has been put up today. The list is here and has 2455 […]

  12. KAY SHIV Says:

    Rest of the applicants’ list is also out, as second and third links in the ‘Competition for design of the -Symbol for Indian Rupee’ already running in the ‘Recent Updates” scroll in the Finmin website – now it is complete. Strangely, this is not easily noticeable because, the links have appeared subsequently in the same matter running since Sept 1- without carrying a date, in that sense without reflecting actual updating. Anyhow, hope things pick up speed now, towards Rupee symbol appearing on the scene.

    “I had written to the RBI in 2005 saying we should have a symbol for the rupee,” said Nondita Correa-Mehrotra , one of the finalists, more marvelling at the coincidence of it all than implying it may have influenced the government.

    IT APPEARS THE BIODATA HAD PUTUP BEFORE JURI BUT IS SHOULD NOT BE DONE. THIS IS VERY BAD AND OBJECTIONAN.

    ——–I had written to the RBI in 2005 saying we should have a symbol for the rupee,” said Nondita Correa-Mehrotra , one of the finalists, more marvelling at the coincidence of it all than implying it may have influenced the government.

    Correa-Mehtorta is a Harvard University-trained architect and works at her father’s firm—Mumbai-based Charles Correa Associates. The final list pits two leading advertising agencies against each other for the big honour—JWT and Publicis Ambience.

    Hitesh Padamshali is a creative director, design, at JWT’s Mumbai office, while Shahrukh J Irani is a creative director at Publicis Ambience. The list also has a typography scholar in D. Udaya Kumar, a PhD candidate at IIT Mumbai’s Industrial Design Centre. He is preparing to defend his dissertation—Transformation of Tamil letter forms from palm leaf manuscripts to early letter press printing—early next year.

    Shibin KK, a computer science teacher at a government higher secondary school near Thalasserry, Kerala, is the fifth finalist, and an outsider of sorts with no formal training in drawing or design. However, he takes up freelance design work.

    For the five finalists, it’s a agonising wait till the symbol is unveiled.

    डॉलर और पाउंड की तर्ज पर अगर आपको रुपये के भी किसी प्रतीक चिह्न का इंतजार है, तो बस मार्च तक और घड़ियां गिनिए। मार्च में रुपये को चिह्न मिल जाएगा।

    भारतीय रिजर्व बैंक की डिप्टी गवर्नर उषा थोराट की अध्यक्षता वाली एक समिति ने करीब 4,000 प्रविष्टियों में से पांच को रुपये का निशान बनाने के लिए छांटा है। इनमें से किसी एक के डिजाइन पर ही अंतिम मुहर लगेगी और विजेता के नाम का ऐलान जनवरी में कर दिया जाएगा लेकिन वित्त मंत्रालय के सूत्रों के मुताबिक मार्च से पहले तक प्रक्रिया पूरी नहीं हो पाएगी।

    वित्त मंत्रालय के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी का कहना है, ‘आरबीआई ने अपनी सिफारिशें सौंप दी हैं लेकिन अभी इस पर वित्त मंत्रालय के साथ-साथ कैबिनेट की मुहर लगना बाकी है। इस प्रक्रिया में दो से तीन महीने का वक्त लग सकता है।’——————

    APPEAL PREFERRED BY SHRI RAKESH KUMAR SINGH AGAINST THE ORDER DATED 7TH JANUARY 2010 OF CPIO, DEA.
    ORDER

    This appeal has been filed by Shri Rakesh kumar singh against the order dated 7.1.2020 of the CPIO of Department of Economic Affairs.

    2. In his application dated 14-12-2009 addressed to the CPIO, the applicant had sought information on 14 points relating to the competition of symbol of Indian rupee. The CPIO furnished the information on 7-1-2010. The appellant is not satisfied with the information furnished on 3 points, i.e. Point No. 1, 4 & 13 and hence this appeal on these points.
    3. Comments of CPIO have been invited. The points on which the appellant is not satisfied with the reply of the CPIO and the factual position is discussed in the succeeding paragraphs.
    4. In point No.1 of his application, the applicant had asked in information about the name, profession and the home-state of the members of Jury appointed by the Government for finalisation of the design of Indian Rupee. The CPIO furnished the name/designation of the member of the jury along with the organization and place where the organization is located.

    5. In point No.4, the applicant had asked information as to the number of total designs received and out of those how many have been rejected. The CPIO informed him that there were 3,331 eligible entries, out of which 5 Final entries were selected by the Jury. This should satisfy the query of the applicant.
    6. In point No. 13, applicant had sought information about the date and mode of information to the contestants about the selection of 5 designs. The CPIO had informed him that final result is yet to be decided. In the comments, CPIO had intimated that the information to the selected contestants was sent on 25-11-2009 through letter. This information was also posted on the website of the Ministry in December 2009. This should satisfy the query of the applicant.
    7. In view of above observations, the appeal is disposed off.

    Meanwhile, Rakesh Kumar Singh, an employee of the Uttar Pradesh state government, alleged there were irregularities in the selection process.
    Singh, who had entered the competition to design a symbol, said he had sought information on the process under the Right to Information (RTI) Act as he suspected that bureaucratic bungling had vitiated the process.
    Details of the replies to his RTI application are posted on the website http://www.saveindianrupeesymbol.org
    The seven-member jury was headed by RBI deputy governor Usha Thorat, and included representatives from the Central government and design institutes. She could not be reached for comment.
    According to Soni, the cabinet’s discussions did not touch upon claims of flaws in the selection process.
    “It was not discussed,” Soni said. “(The) RTI query was neither raised nor discussed.
    When asked about Singh’s claims about the selection process, a member of the jury, who did not want to be identified, said the jury was not aware of the RTI application.
    As the aim of the entire process is to standardize the expression of the rupee globally, the symbol will be included in the Unicode standard for representation and processing of texts written in major scripts.
    According to a government statement, the symbol will also be included in Indian standards, or Indian Script Code for Information Interchange (ISCII).
    The ISCII specifies various codes for Indian languages processing on computers along with keyboard layouts.
    The government statement added that the industry lobbies for Indian software and hardware companies, Nasscom and Manufacturers Association for Information Technology, or Mait, would ask their members to make changes needed to allow the rupee’s symbol to be used in texts.
    According to Soni, the Central government would also ask states to encourage people to use the symbol to depict the rupee.

    …….But like all things big, the rupee symbol comes with a dose of controversy. An RTI query has been filed over the selection process of the currency symbol for it not being a fair and transparent process. According to the RTI applicant, not everyone in the jury was present while selecting the symbol. Soni said the RTI query was not discussed in the cabinet meeting.

    News update.

    Mr. Rakesh Kumar Singh had submitted a LPA petition in the Delhi High Court challenging Delhi HC earlier judgment in which court had refused to entertain his petition challenging selection process of New Indian Rupee Symbol.

    After hearing the LPA, Hon’ble Chief Justice and Hon’ble Mr. Justice Sanjiv Khanna of Delhi High Court in their judgment said “We learned senior counsel appearing for the appellant submitted that he may be permitted to withdraw the appeal as he really does not have the grievance solely because the symbol has not been accepted but he intends to challenge the procedural aspects which are adopted by the Union of India at various levels relating to such kind of works which affect various provisions of the Official Languages Act and many other provisions of various statutes as well as Article 14 of the Constitution of India.

    If we understand the submission of Mr. Sawhney in a proper perspective, he wants to file a petition in the larger public interest.

    In view of the aforesaid, we are inclined to permit the withdrawal of the appeal with liberty to file a Public Interest Litigation with the appropriate pleadings and data which are necessary to sustain a Public Interest Litigation.”
