The rise in reserves was on account of increase in foreign currency asset, which is a major component of the overall foreign exchange reserves.

In the reporting week, foreign currency assets increased by $4.202 billion to $398.649 billion.

Foreign currency assets, that are expressed in dollar terms include the effect of appreciation/depreciation of non-US units like the euro, pound and yen held in the reserves.

Meanwhile, RBI data showed that gold reserves remained unchanged at $22.958 billion.

Special drawing rights with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) increased by $4.2 million to $1.453 billion. India's reserve position with the fund also rose by $9.6 million to $3.354 billion.
