No immediate advantage to exporters from rupee fall



News:

  • In line with crash in equities the rupee tumbled sharply by 82 paise — its biggest single day fall this year — to settle at 66.65 against the US dollar as global meltdown fears remained unabated.
  • Federation of Indian Export Organisation (FIEO) President S C Ralhan said that such high volatility will “not add competitiveness to exports” as these exchange rate being volatile cannot be factored into prices.
  • Engineering Export Promotion Council (EEPC) said that crash of rupee to almost two year low does not automatically result in a comparative advantage to exporters because it is not only the Indian currency but several currencies in the emerging markets which have lost under the impact of meltdown of global stocks.
