To boost the struggling banks of euro zone the European Central Bank (ECB) announced that it will inject two new revival reforms in the economy by providing ultra-cheap 1-year funding to banks and buying back 'covered bonds' of 40 billion euros ($54 billion) in coming year.

ECB abstained from cutting interest rates this time as inflation still remains at 3%, out of bank's comfort zone but many analysts expect, it may cut the rates by next month.

Right after the announcement, the euro rose against the dollar and major other currencies.

The Rupee fell against the Euro in morning trade, it opened at 65.94 and was trading low at 66.14/15.
