read such news on daily basis. Let us assume that in case, you go to a bank and asks the bank that you intend to buy US$100, please tell me what is the amount of INR you have to pay. Bank informs you that you need to pay Rs 5410/-. This means you can buy US$ @ Rs.54.10 per dollar. This is the selling rate of the said bank for US $ for that day.



Ads by Google


Now after one month, you go to bank and again ask the bank that you wish to buy US$ 100, and bank tells you that this time you have to pay Rs.5490. This means you have pay more to receive the same amount of US $. This means the local currency has depreciated.

This will be known as Depreciation of Indian Rupee. In the above example, it is clear that value of INR has gone when compared to US$.

On the other hand, if the rate quoted by bank on second occasion is say Rs. 5380/-. It will be considered as appreciation of INR as this time you have to pay less amount to buy the same amount of US$.


What is the impact of Depreciation and Appreciation of Rupee on Indian living in India. We are assuming that initially the exchange rate of US$-INR is Rs.50/- :
