During the previous week, the rupee had endured losses against the US dollar to close 1.33% or Rs3.74 lower in the interbank market. It was the third consecutive week that the local currency had witnessed a fall.

Before this, the local currency had maintained a positive close for 28 successive sessions, one of the longest appreciation runs as it had cumulatively gained 10.93% since hitting a record low of Rs307.1 in the interbank market on September 5.

The unprecedented increase had largely come on the back of a crackdown against smuggling and controls on exchange companies. However, since then, the fortunes have turned in the US dollar’s favour.
