Forex reserves down $3 billion to $561 billion


MUMBAI: The country’s foreign exchange reserves declined by $3.007 billion to $561.046 billion in the week ended August 26, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) data showed.
In the previous week ended August 19, the reserves had dipped by $6.687 billion to $564.053 billion.
The fall in the reserves during the reporting week ended August 26 was on account of a dip in the foreign currency assets (FCA), a major component of the overall reserves, and the gold reserves, according to the Weekly Statistical Supplement released by the RBI on Friday.
FCA decreased by $2.571 billion to $498.645 billion in the reporting week.
Expressed in dollar terms, the foreign currency assets include the effect of appreciation or depreciation of non-US units like the euro, pound and yen held in the foreign exchange reserves.
Gold reserves decreased by USD 271 million to $39.643 billion, the data showed.
The Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) dropped by $155 million to $17.832 billion.
