I am using the symbol on Mac OS X with XeLaTeX (not plain LaTeX), using fontspec and the following lines in the preamble (with the font itself placed in /Library/Fonts):

\newfontface\Rupee{Indian Rupee} % Raju Das's Indian Rupee font
\newcommand{\Rs}{{\Rupee \symbol{"20A8}}}

Then in the main body (after \begin{document}), one can simply write This contract is worth \Rs 20,000,'' etc.

It is possible to use another font rather than "Indian Rupee.ttf" -- just change the name in the \newfontface appropriately.
