Central bank eager to add to its already historic FX reserves, according to sources

According to two people familiar with the bank’s thinking, India’s central bank will continue to increase its foreign exchange reserves as it works to create bigger buffers. The country’s equities and debt markets are seeing significant inflows, which presents an opportunity for the bank to do so.

Despite strong economic growth and a positive balance of payments, analysts believe that the Reserve Bank of India’s assimilation of dollar inflows will indirectly avert a sharp appreciation of the rupee.

As of March 15, the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) foreign exchange reserves reached a record high of $642.49 billion.
