Forex reserves off record high, slump $4 bn to $367.64 bn

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

After touching a record high, the country's foreign exchange reserves declined by a whopping USD 4.343 billion to USD 367.646 billion in the week to October 7, the Reserve Bank said today.

The decline was on account of a substantial fall in foreign currency assets (FCAs), a major component of the overall reserves.



In the previous week ended September 30, the reserves had surged USD 1.223 billion to reach a life-time high of USD 371.99 billion.

In the reporting week, foreign currency reserves dipped by USD 4.316 billion to USD 342.394 billion.

FCAs, expressed in terms, include the effect of appreciation/depreciation of non-US currencies such as the euro, pound and the yen held in the reserves.

Gold reserves remained steady at USD 21.406 billion, the apex bank said.

The special drawing rights with the International Monetary Fund declined by USD 10.4 million to USD 1.476 billion, while India's reserve position with the Fund dipped by USD 16.5 million to USD 2.369 billion, the apex bank said.
