Sustained dollar demand from importers, particularly crude importers has resulted in pressure on the rupee. This is despite the fact that the nation is seeing record inflows from foreign funds.
The rupee is expected to remain weak and breach the 51 mark, as the technicals for the currency are showing signs of weakness.
The Reserve Bank of India has also not intervened in the foreign exchange market. Analysts say that the central bank might decide to intervene should there be more volatility and a sharper slide in the rupee.
