Big shock for Modi Govt..Rupee crashes to 72.74 versus dollar

Mumbai, Sep 11:
Inflationary risks along with broadly negative global cues depressed the Indian rupee to a new low of 72.74 to the US dollar during late afternoon session on Tuesday.

At 3.35 p.m. the rupee traded around 72.64 per dollar, against the previous close of 72.45 per dollar at the Inter-Bank Foreign Exchange Market.

According to analysts, expectations of higher overall inflation rate, growing protectionism in global trade and an increasing outflow of foreign funds from the country's equity market have subdued the Indian currency.
