Govt rules out ‘knee-jerk’ reaction to tackle rupee fall

Prime News, National, International, Business, New Delhi, June 29:- The government today ruled out any “knee-jerk reaction” to tackle the fall in rupee and said appropriate measures would be taken after taking into consideration the global situation.

Against the backdrop of the rupee breaching the 69-mark versus the US dollar and touching lifetime lows on Thursday, Finance Minister Piyush Goyal emphasised that there is no need for any knee-jerk reaction to deal with the situation.

The rupee closed at an all-time low of 68.79 on Thursday due to multiple headwinds, including concerns over inflation and weak global cues. The currency recovered lost ground today to touch 68.36 in afternoon trade.

“I have full faith that the RBI, which manages foreign exchange and rates, and the government will sit together and discuss. We will take a call on appropriate measures taking into consideration the global situation,” he noted.

“Knee-jerk reaction is not called for. One has to work in an organised market and in an organised fashion,” Goyal told reporters here. –(Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
