He said, “Most of the currencies of the world, compared to what it was a 4-5 years ago, rupee is better off. It has consistently strengthened or remained in a range and not weakened”.

Arun Jaitley further stressed that RBI is working now in the forex markets on Wednesday as they will sold dollars at 71.80 rupees per dollar to handle the Rupee fall.

“RBI is currently doing whatever is necessary. I don’t think there is any need for the World’s fastest-growing economy to come out with panic and knee-jerk reactions”.
