Decline in rupee pretty tolerable, Ambit Asset Management

Aishvarya Dadheech, Fund Manager, Ambit Asset Management said, "Global risk aversion has led to rupee depreciation against the dollar; however, the decline is pretty tolerable. Even though rupee touched the psychological mark of 80 per dollar, rupee has indeed appreciated against the majority of leading currencies like Euro, GBP and Yen etc. Forex reserve remains at healthy levels and recent measures by the RBI will help overcome dollar shortage. Fundamentals of INR are intact and the recent correction (due to global risk off sentiment) is an overreaction. We believe INR will remain range bound and foreign investors will see this as an opportunity, and will be tempted to lock in at these levels."
