You can do it with Intl.NumberFormat native API.

var number = 123456.78;

// India uses thousands/lakh/crore separators
console.log(new Intl.NumberFormat('en-IN', {
  style: 'currency',
  currency: 'INR'
}).format(number));

Image approach is not bad either. It hardly takes 400Bytes.
Download from here http://i.stack.imgur.com/vJZ9m.png

<span class="rupee"></span>

Well i found it better than webrupee.

For colors edit the image as below

    .rupee{
    background-position:left;
    width: 10px; 
    height: 14px;
    background-image: url('rupee.png');
    display:block; 
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
}

@smilyface 2019-01-02 07:26:40

It's possible with simple HTML entity code.

.ex{
color:green;
font-size:20px;
}
Example 1 : <span class="ex">&#x20b9;1200/-</span><br>
Example 2 : <span class="ex">&#8377;3545/-</span><br>
Example 3 : <span class="ex">&#2352;134/-</span> *Is not the exact Rupee symbol

@Pratyush 2014-02-21 05:51:49

If you are using font awesome icons, then you can use this:

To import font-awesome:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.3.0/css/font-awesome.min.css">

Usage:

Current Price: <i class="fa fa-inr"></i> 400.00

will show as:

Imgur

@RN Kushwaha 2014-12-04 13:08:09

Its best even if computer don't have font

@Aditi K 2015-01-05 05:49:31

just use <i class="fa fa-inr"></i> 400.00 line its enough

@mindmyweb 2015-04-18 11:15:41

thanks for this the currency unicode crashed in one of the 5 pc i checked it in but this was a life saver.

@ankit suthar 2017-11-23 09:02:26

the best answer till so far, also working on any bootstrap theme.

@Abhilash 2014-06-23 20:32:10

Please try the following solution:

<span style='font-family:Arial;'>&#8377;</span>

This will be displayed as : ₹

@Shiv Kumar Sah 2014-05-08 12:49:29

There are two html entity code : &#x20b9; &#8377;

JQUERY INR v1.2

A simple jQuery plug-in for convert Rs. to standard Indian rupee symbol through out the web page. Simple to use and simple instillation

The Indian Rupee sign is the currency sign: ₹ for the Indian Rupee, the official currency of India. Designed by D. Udaya Kumar, it was presented to the public by the Government of India on 15 July 2010,[1] following its selection through an “open” competition among Indian residents. Before its adoption, the most commonly used symbols for the rupee were Rs, Re or, if the text was in an Indian language, an appropriate abbreviation in that language. The new sign relates solely to the Indian rupee; other countries that use a rupee, such as Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Nepal, still use the generic U+20A8 ₨ rupee sign character. The design resembles both the Devanagari letter "र" (ra) and the Latin capital letter "R", with a double horizontal line at the top.

Instillation:

  1. Download the “jQueryINR_v1.2.zip” and extract.
  2. copy images (“rupee.svg, rupee.gif”) to your images folder.
  3. cope scripts folder to your project path or else copy the .js files to your script folder.
  4. Download the “jQueryINR_v1.2.zip” and extract.
  5. copy images (“rupee.svg, rupee.gif”) to your images folder.
  6. cope scripts folder to your project path or else copy the .js files to your script folder.
  7. Include jQuery min and jQuery Ui to your page first

    eg: NB: use jQuery stable version only

  8. include the “indianRupee_v1.2.js” and “indianRupee_ctrl.js” after the jQuery library eg:

  9. Use Span tag to wrap Rs through out the web it will replace with the symbol eg: Rs 1280000/-

Source:

Pay Him Rs 1280000/-

Pay Him Rs 528500/-

Pay Him Rs 1250/-

Pay Him Rs 1280000/-

Result:

   http://romy.theqtl.com/rupeePlugin/

Plug-in Options:

$("body").indianRupee({ targets:"span",// use as default we can also use [p, div, h1 , li etc...] vector:"on"//[on/off] of [true/false] NB: {vector not support in Internet Explore } });

IE11 not working, did you have any hack?

@Sanjay 2011-12-13 20:36:31

The HTML entity for the Indian rupee sign is &#8377; (₹). Use it like you would &copy; for the copyright sign. For more, read Wikipedia's article on the rupee sign.

@SaurabhLP 2013-04-12 05:21:00

whats the browser support of these currency signs? does they work till IE7?

@Chirag 2013-06-09 07:34:17

I realized that rupee symbol does not appear in several browsers. Do we need to install a ttf file or update the browser?

@imdadhusen 2013-07-01 11:58:17

Really useful to me!! +1

@JustLearn 2010-08-30 11:36:31

WebRupee is a web API for the Indian currency symbol. It provides a simple, cross browser method for using the Rrupee symbol on your webpage, blog or anywhere on the web.

Here is a method for printing the Indian currency symbol:

<html>
<head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://cdn.webrupee.com/font">
    <script src=http://cdn.webrupee.com/js type=”text/javascript”></script>
</head>
<body>
    Rupee Symbol: <span class="WebRupee">Rs.</span> 200

This means if somebody copies text from your site and pastes it somewhere else, he will see Rs and not some other or blank character.

You can now also use the new Rupee unicode symbol — U+20B9 INDIAN RUPEE SIGN. It can be used in this manner:

<span class="WebRupee">&#x20B9;</span> 500

Just include the following script and it will update all the "Rs" / "Rs." for you:

<script src="http://cdn.webrupee.com/js" type="text/javascript"></script>

@ankitjaininfo 2010-08-30 11:41:03

aren't we talking about the new Rupee symbol?

@ankitjaininfo 2010-08-30 16:57:48

and I see this does not work on my FF 3.6 i.imgur.com/V8fnG.png go fix it.

@palswim 2010-09-01 15:35:17

Won't let me vote, but I'd -1 this if I could!

@PKHunter 2013-02-13 17:23:25

This won't work in Mozilla because for some weird "security" reason, they made a decision to only show fonts that are from the same domain.

@PKHunter 2013-02-13 17:44:07

Also, the CDN js from this organization gives a "stack overflow" problem in IE, as described in the accepted answer here: stackoverflow.com/questions/11561984/stack-overflow-at-line-‌​0

@Vicky Chijwani 2017-01-03 21:19:02

webrupee.com doesn't exist any more.

@harry patel 2011-06-06 06:50:15

Just type <del>&#2352;</del> in your web page.

@Amit Kumar Gupta 2011-12-01 15:59:38

A good alternate. only if i can pull up the line.

@anglimasS 2013-06-24 07:01:22

this is not Rs symbol

@Amol 2011-03-01 09:08:44

use this new unicode char: &#x20b9;

@Jitendra Vyas 2013-04-04 11:48:08

it's not working on any version of IE

@ankitjaininfo 2010-08-30 11:52:48

It will take more than an year (or two) for the universal acceptance.

  1. Unicode consortium approves the char-code.
  2. Fonts are updated to include this symbol
  3. Browsers/OS are updated to include new fonts and then only it is visible on every browser on earth.

Creating custom fonts by using arbitrary code-base and (forcefully) embedding them in every web-pages is discouraged for Website. (for desktop applications it may be acceptable). Although your solution may be acceptable; I would not advice just for the sake of one symbol! Loading a font file makes web-pages slower.

By the time it is advised to use icon-sets for rupee symbol. Prepare a set of icons with sizes 12x8, 16x12, 32x32 that you can incorporate in-line using <img> tag.

E.g 5000/- (i just resized the image; it should have been re-sampled for given size for better results)

<img src="http://i.stack.imgur.com/nGbfO.png" width="8" height="10">

Note: This is what Wikipedia does. it uses png/svg file. Check the infobox here.

@ankitjaininfo 2010-08-30 13:27:44

yah.. my frnds upvoted me and I got score of 1,402! u too go and make frnds on SO instead of FB. What i described here is the best thing to do rather. There is an HTML way if you can read in my answer. Creating custom fonts by using arbitrary code-base and (forcefully) embedding them in web-pages is highly discouraged for Website. But that cannot guarantee your page will display on all web browsers; even that's an unnecessary when you can have IMG! It does not make sense to use BIG FONT FILE for just one symbol. You want scalable graphic - choose SVG!

@ankitjaininfo 2010-08-30 13:32:02

from the revisions of this quetion, seems like you just wanted to promote your WebRupee

@ankitjaininfo 2010-08-30 16:51:24

and now I see they even have Wiki page ( en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Webrupee&action=history ) created few days back. viral marketing. although your solution is acceptable. but i would not advice just for the sake of one symbol! prefer IMG.

@Rakesh Juyal 2010-09-04 09:04:39

@Ankit: do you really think using image is better alternative ?

@ankitjaininfo 2010-09-04 10:45:04

@Rakesh Can you list down benefits u get with a font symbol? for Machines and Humans both! For humans having image vs font is no difference. For machines having image means less computing, less bandwidth, faster webpage rendering. (this argument is valid unless the FONTS with Rs are available in every OS!)

@ajay_whiz 2010-08-30 06:15:49

This can be sought of a temporary solution. Unicode has accepted U+20B9 as Indian rupee symbol soon all systems will update themselves

@Pekka supports GoFundMonica 2010-08-30 11:36:08

I think "soon" is a bit optimistic, seeing as it's fonts that have to get updated. This will take a while.
