MUMBAI The rupee fell to near record lows against the dollar on Wednesday, forcing the Reserve Bank of India to intervene to stem further falls on a tough day for Asian currencies.
The rupee fell to as low as 68.67 to the dollar, not far from a record low of 68.85 hit in August 2013 when India was struggling with its worst financial turmoil since the 1991 balance of payment crisis.
This time around the rupee is also responding to a worsening global environment, including uncertainty about low oil prices and continued worries about China's economy.
Traders said they expect the rupee to soon test the record low, with one-month non-deliverable forwards PNDF already trading at 69.
Traders were hoping India's sturdier economic fundamentals than in 2013 and foreign exchange reserves of near a record $355 billion could help reduce some of the concerns, though much would depend on how the Reserve Bank of India responds.
RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan in September said India would be "An island of relative calm in an ocean of turmoil" and has touted the country's lower inflation and higher growth than other economies.
