Another reason for the appreciation in the rupee is the huge foreign fund flow that is expected to come to the Indian markets due to Arcelor Mittal - Essar Steel deal.

In a Bloomberg report, it is stated the curbed level of appreciation in the home currency denotes RBI's stand despite significant foreign fund inflow which can hamper the country's exports.
