The Indian Rupee
sign has been added to Unicode Currency Symbols.
I have edited CompositeData.xml to add a definition for it. If the character is mapped to hexadecimal codepoint 20B9 (decimal 8377) in your font, this code (in the Professional Edition only) will combine the initial elements for the design — Capital letter R, and two horizontal rules (underline characters) in the suggested vertical positions.
After completing composites, make the glyph simple and do some work with the knife tool to create the design as you like. Add the following code to CompositeData.xml in the right numeric sequence at the end of the Currency Symobls (make a backup copy first) and restart FontCreator.
Code: Select all

Thanks you Bhikkhu Pesala for making us aware of this new character! Needles to say we will add your suggested composite definition to CompositeData.xml with the next upcoming release.

One thing to note is that the sign is not actually based on Latin letter R. It is actually an amalgam of R and Devanagari Ra, so Bikkhu's character has some stylistic issues - the serif at the bottom of the bowl should be more pronounced, and probably be angled upward, reflecting that Ra is made with one stroke for the bowl, and another for the leg, rather than being a single, extended stroke. The leg stroke should, however, be the same weight as the bowl, reflecting Latin R.
