Indian Rupee faces yet another historic low against US dollar

NEW DELHI - Indian rupee faces yet another historic low against US Dollar and other currencies.

It depreciated 81 paise to 72.65 against the dollar on Monday at the forex market.

The fall was noticed despite the government's steps to stem a steep fall in the currency, amid reports that the US could announce a new round of tariffs on Chinese imports later in the day.

Against the UAE dirham, the rupee was trading at 19.77 at 9:30am (UAE time).

The dollar rose against a basket of major currencies overseas, with investors cautiously awaiting news on the implementation of US tariffs on an additional $200 billion of Chinese imports, forex dealers said.

On Friday, the rupee had gained 34 paise to close at a one-week high of 71.84 against the US dollar on positive macro data and hopes of policy intervention by the government to defend the volatile currency
