An emerging markets analyst said that the delay in inflows of promised funds from Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries had impacted the rupee. Conversely, a month ago, the local currency won the title of the best-performing currency in emerging markets in August 2022. The IMF approval of the loan tranche of $1.16 billion had also supported the currency’s stabilisation, the analyst said. Experts said the rupee is weakening mainly due to the dollar strengthening against world currencies as the Fed hinted at increasing interest rate by 0.75% in the forthcoming monetary policy of the US.
