I'm able to display "₹" Indian rupee symbol in the visualforce page either by hard coding or by using some 5 digit code. But the same VF page when rendered as PDF "₹" Indian rupee symbol won't display. May I know how to display "₹" symbol in PDF?
I have already tried that and it is not supported as of now. So you can't use that. Some workaround which you can use is either display INR or make a small PNG of Ruppe symbol and then conditional display that image. Not a good choice but you can use if you don't have any other choice else you can go with INR.
Here is a code sample in case someone want to try this.
