Key Quotes (via ET Bureau):

“The fair value of the rupee is in the range of 67-70, based on the productivity-adjusted Real Effective Exchange Rate (REER).

If the current trend of lower oil lasts through March 2019, the currency could trade between 69 and 72 to a dollar.

A sustainable rupee appreciation is still some time away, given the general elections, MSCI EM rebalancing in the second or third quarter of 2019, and New Delhi’s basic balance deficit despite the plunge in global oil prices.  

A marginal depreciation bias for the rupee could continue into FY20, although the currency is unlikely to reprise this calendar year’s weak performance.”
