Som Mittal, President of Nasscom said, "We think the 54-56 range is good which we had kind of settled in. I hope the rupee comes back to that level and hovers within that short band.
"I don't think a weak rupee is good for the economy. But then there is problem with a strong rupee as well. So there should be a balance."
Mittal said in some large companies as much as 30-35 per cent of the cost like salaries, sales, administrative expenses and equipment, among others, are dollar denominated. Hence, they do hedging.
"So you might find some people gaining in the short-term and some even lose because of the currency fluctuation. Nobody had expected the rupee will slide to this level," Mittal said
