Anand Rathi Report

India has overtaken Taiwan to become the fourth-largest forex-reserve holder in the world.

Forex reserves for the week ending August 28, 2020 was 541 billion dollar, a 3.9 billion dollar rise over the previous week.

The reserve build-up in Q1 FY21 (27 billion dollar) was almost equally split between the Reserve Bank of India’s dollar buying and mark-to-market valuation gains.

In Q2 FY21, the rise in forex reserves ( 36 billion dollar so far) is being driven mainly by the RBI’s forex buying.

This is averting large rupee appreciation and keeping domestic liquidity accommodative.
