[edit] [purge] Template documentation


To automatically convert and format currency from Indian Rupees (Rs.) to United States Dollars. (US$) for use on India-related articles on Wikipedia or wherever appropriate. The actual Rupee-Dollar exchange rate is manually copied each week by a Wikipedia editor from the U.S. Federal Reserve reported data and posted into this template. The conversion is from the value posted by the Wikipedia editor into U.S. dollars. The output does not reflect the present exchange rate; rather, the output reflects the exchage rate posted by the Wikipedia editor at the time the template exchange multiplier is updated.
