Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This is a multifunction template. At its simplest, it adds the currency mark "₹", as recommended by MOS:CURRENCY for many situations. The template can also link to the Indian rupee article and can even calculate inflation. See warnings below.

Usage[change source]



  • {{₹}}
  • {{₹|123.45}}₹123.45

Link[change source]

The parameter |link=yes may be used to link ₹ to the article Indian rupee. This is turned off by default, but may be appropriate for the first occurrence of the term in an article.


  • {{₹|123.45|link=yes}}123.45

Inflation calculation[change source]

The template supports inflation calculation, by way of {{Inflation}}. If the second parameter is used, to specify a year, and this year is within a certain range of available inflation data (specifically, if 1953 ≤ year < 2019), the equivalent value represented in 2019 rupees will be calculated in parentheses. However, this function should only be used in appropriate situations.

  • {{|value|year}}
  • {{|value|year|round=round|about=yes}}


  • {{₹|100|1952}}₹100
  • {{₹|100|1953}}₹100 (equivalent to ₹5,357 in 2019)
  • {{₹|100|1990}}₹100 (equivalent to ₹507.3 in 2019)
  • {{₹|100|1990|link=yes}}100 (equivalent to ₹507.3 in 2019)
  • {{₹|100|2018}}₹100 (equivalent to ₹100 in 2019)
  • {{₹|100|2019}}₹100
  • {{₹|100|2021}}₹100
  • {{₹|100|2022}}₹100

Additional parameter |about=yes will cause the template to calculate to the nearest rupee (instead of the nearest paisa), and prefix the calculated value with "about". The rounding can be fine-tuned further by using |round=integer. These parameters may be combined.


  • {{₹|10|1990}}₹10 (equivalent to ₹50.73 in 2019)
  • {{₹|10|1990|round=0}}₹10 (equivalent to ₹51 in 2019)
  • {{₹|10|1990|about=yes}}₹10 (equivalent to about ₹51 in 2019)
  • {{₹|1000|1990|round=2}}₹1,000 (equivalent to ₹5,073.01 in 2019)
  • {{₹|1000|1990|round=-2}}₹1,000 (equivalent to ₹5,100 in 2019)
  • {{₹|1000|1990|round=-2|about=yes}}₹1,000 (equivalent to about ₹5,100 in 2019)
