“We Invented money and we use it, yet we cannot understand its laws or control its actions. It has a life of its own.” -Lionel Trilling.

Controls/Measures adapted to control the fall of Rupee  Liberalisation of Bank Deposit Schemes.  Reduction in Import of Gold, Silver and Oil.  Tightened Liquidity of rupee in Banking System.  Increase of Capital Inflows to the Country.  Promotion of Exports.  Increase of Interest Rates of Banks to its Customers.  Ban of Duty free import of flat screen Telephones.  Selling of Infrastructure Bonds.

Conclusion  The Indian Rupee has depreciated significantly against the US Dollar marking a new risk for Indian economy. Grim global economic outlook along with high inflation, widening current account deficit and FII outflows have contributed to this fall. RBI has responded with timely interventions by selling dollars intermittently. But in times of global uncertainty, investors prefer USD as a safe haven. To attract investments, RBI can ease capital controls by increasing the FII limit on investment in government and corporate debt instruments and introduce higher ceilings in ECB’s. Government can create a stable political and economic environment. However, a lot depends on the Global economic outlook and the future of Eurozone which will determine the future of INR.
