24 January 2012

MUMBAI: Indian rupee opened stronger on Wednesday on expectations for continued foreign fund inflows after the central bank signalled a shift in its policy to support growth. 

The Reserve Bank of India cut the cash reserve ratio by 50 basis points on Tuesday to ease tight liquidity, but held key rates steady as core inflation remains stubbornly high. 

RBI Governor Duvvuri Subbarao said financial markets should not be under the impression that recent administrative steps that authorities have taken to curb speculation in foreign exchange are temporary.
