How will the rupee affect you?
Let us tell you that the effect of rise and fall in rupee can be seen on the life of common people. This is also being seen in the form of inflation rate in recent times. Weakness in the rupee nullifies the effect of any shortfall in the commodity imported from the international market.
Due to this, it will take more time to get the benefit of the fall in crude oil, because in the midst of the fall in prices, the import bill will increase due to the weakness in the rupee and this will keep the burden on the exchequer.
