On Friday, data released by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) showed that India’s foreign exchange reserves further declined by $3.8 billion. The country’s foreign exchange reserves have fallen by $108.2 billion to $524.5 billion since the beginning of the year (chart 1). However, India is not the only country to witness a decline in foreign exchange reserves. A Business Standard analysis shows that until September-end, forex reserves for Bangladesh and Vietnam had declined more than India’s. Among the BRICS economies (excluding Russia), India suffered the maximum decline in forex reserves (chart 2).
