    But I do not see English India among the drop downs. Office version is 2010. My OS is Windows 8 installed with English India. Can I correct this ?

    I am using Office 2016 and I have selected Currency English (India) but some Rectangular Box is coming instead of the Rupee Symbol as shown below:
    ₹ 100.00
    ₹ 1,000.00
    ₹ 200.00
    ₹ 2,500.00
    Please advise.
