Rupee Fall Due To External Factors: Govt

Rupee Fall Due To External Factors: Govt

New Delhi/ Mumbai - The rupee collapsed to a life-time low of 70.09 against the US dollar on August 14, falling 16 paise amid fears that the Turkish economic crisis could lead to a global financial meltdown.

The ongoing currency turmoil in Turkey has dampened investors’ sentiments globally. Investors are turning to the dollar as safe haven with Turkey’s currency lira crisis continuing since the last week.

Meanwhile, the Indian government blamed “external factors” for the rupee’s fall to an all-time low and said there was nothing to worry about as of now.

Economic affairs secretary Subhash Chander Garg said external factors may ease going forward.

“Rupee is depreciating due to external factors,” he said. There is “nothing at this stage to worry”.

SBI chairman Rajnish Kumar said all currencies have weakened against the dollar, but the Indian currency has not weakened very much in comparison to other currencies.

“I feel that it (rupee) should stabilise between 69 and 70 because if you look at the numbers for investment which is coming into the country -- investment in bonds, investment in equities -- this level has become attractive for foreign investment,” Kumar said.

Research analyst at Anand Rathi Shares and Stock Brokers, Rushabh Maru said the rupee extended losses on account of panic demand from importers.
