Rupee at All-Time Low: The fall of Rupee against the Dollar has reached a historic level today. Today the rupee has fallen to 83.29 per dollar and a further decline of 13 paise has been recorded. The reason behind the sharp fall in the rupee against the US dollar in the Interbank Foreign Currency Exchange market was that the prices of crude oil are continuously increasing and the strength of the dollar is also increasing compared to other currencies in the international market. Due to this, the sentiment for the rupee has weakened today.
