  Rupee - LoveToKnow 1911
A silver coin of 175 grains Troy, called tanka, approximating to the rupee, was struck by the Mahommedan rulers of Delhi in the 13th century; but the rupee itself, of 179 grains, was introduced by Sher Shah in 1542.
The weight of the rupee (one Iola) is also the unit upon which the Indian standard of weights is based.
Therefore a lakh of rupees, which before 1873 was worth Lio,000, is now only worth £6666, and a crore of rupees, which was formerly a million sterling, now only amounts to £666,666.

 Rediff On The Net Business Commentary: Dilip Thakore warns of the danger of a falling rupee
If the rupee hasn’t depreciated to the extent of the won, baht and the ringgit, this is not the consequence of the inherent strength of economy or astute economic management.
The prime factor behind the relative stability of the rupee is the lack of national self-confidence resulting in procrastination on the issue of the full convertibility.
If the rupee had been convertible on the capital account as the currencies of the beleaguered Southeast Asian nations are, there would have been a massive flight of capital which would have been seen the value of the rupee drop like a stone into a deep abyss.

Rupee is the name given to the official currency that is used in several countries including India, Bhutan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Mauritius, Maldives and Indonesia.

However, commerce ministry mandarins feel the rupee should be allowed to weaken further against the greenback, pushing it closer to the 46.75-mark, to help exporters, especially business process outsourcing firms.
The rupee has been weakening partly because of rising oil prices, which have hit $78 a barrel, and partly because of the rising current account deficit, which will be around 1.5 per cent of GDP this year.
A continuous rupee depreciation is widening the country’s trade deficit, which is likely to hit $70 billion by the end of 2006-07.

 India: Where is the rupee heading?
This is closest to the level the rupee was on Dec. 27, 2001, when it was trading at 48.20 to the dollar.
The point to note is that although undervaluation of the rupee has happened in the past, it used to be a result of weakness of the greenback.
However, analysts say, RBI is facing a lot of pressure from exporter lobbies, especially from the software sector, to let the rupee depreciate, as the strengthening of the currency has impacted their earnings significantly this year, as bulk of their revenues is in US dollars.

 Rupee instability
The downward pressure on the rupee continued during the subsequent week, despite an effort on the part of the RBI to sell dollars from its reserves to moderate the decline of the rupee against the dollar.
If despite such pressures the rupee had traded at a price ranging from 35.70 to 35.85 to the dollar over the last year, it was only because of intervention by the RBI and its purchase of dollars that were added to its reserves.
Days before the rupee's slide, the Deputy Governor of the RBI had announced to a gathering of foreign exchange dealers that the rupee was in fact overvalued.

 The Telegraph - Calcutta : Opinion
Arguably, with India’s macro fundamentals and high growth rates, as a long-term trend, the rupee should appreciate against the dollar in real terms.
Fifth, it is a figment of the imagination that the exchange rate is completely market-determined, since it is subject to intervention by the Reserve Bank of India, and one suspects that the RBI is happy to see the rupee slide a bit.
Rupee depreciation reduces pressures for protectionism and enables one to reduce tariffs, without adverse effects on customs revenue.

 The Hindu : External factors put pressure on rupee
The value of the rupee is keenly watched by the central bank and the movements are dictated by fundamentals.
The authorities believe that gradually weakening rupee is good for the Indian economy since it boosts India's exports and curtails imports which, also protects the domestic industry from foreign competition and pursue a policy to that effect.
The rupee kept falling steadily culminating to an historical low against the dollar at 46.92 on October 30 till the external factors seem to be changing in favour of the rupee.

Other IT companies when asked about rupee options were either unaware of the same or had not looked into the choice properly yet—indicating that the market has not responded to rupee options enough for anyone to come out with an accurate prediction for its future relevance.
The appreciating rupee is a relatively new phenomenon to a country whose industries have been used to working on a depreciating rupee for over a decade now.
However, in case the rupee continues to appreciate, companies would then certainly have to explore newer areas and remedies—from charging a higher price to setting up operations in other geographies and increasing offshore activities to reduce the component of rupee cost.

 Chapter RUBLE <i>to</i> RUPEE of R by The Hobson Jobson Dictionary
Rupees were struck in Bombay at a very early date of the British occupation.
The Rupee at Madras (where however the standard currency was of an entirely different character, see PAGODA) was originally that of the Nawab of the Carnatic (or ‘Nabob of Arcot’) and was usually known as the Arcot Rupee.
These examples will give some idea of the confusion that prevailed (without any reference to the vast variety besides of native coinages), but the subject is far too complex to be dealt with minutely in the space we can afford to it in such a work as this.

The rupee opened the day at 44.26/28 weaker than yesterdays close at 44.1250 and now it’s eased from three-month high as the dollar extended gains after the European Central Bank left interest rates unchanged and data showed US trade deficit narrowed.
Still, the rupee has gained about 1.7 percent against the dollar in 2006 helped by net foreign fund investment of $587 million in Indian stocks in the first seven trading days and the dollar's overseas losses.

 Rupee sinks to all-time low of 40.77
Mumbai, May 14: The rupee touched a historic low of 40.77/80 against the dollar on Thursday in the aftermath of the tough US sanctions.
After opening at 39.77/78 (against the Wednesday's closing level of 39.77/78), the rupee went through the roof and pierced the psychological barrier of 40 on heavy import covering led by the SBI and a clutch of foreign banks within hours of opening the market.
The SBI was buying dollars after the rupee crossed the 40-mark and was quoting at 40.75 when it made an about-turn and started to sell dollars at40.60.

 The Hindu : Rising rupee's hidden messages
But once the rupee's appreciating trend becomes pronounced, there would be an increasing clamour from among those affected to either check the rupee's rise or mitigate its consequences through some well known sops (interest rate reduction?).
A strong rupee also can partially mitigate the consequences of the large oil import bill, although right now it is the oil companies, which are acting as a buffer.
The rupee appreciation is mostly driven by capital inflows, which have caused a mismatch between demand and supply of foreign currency.
