The economy watchers have highlighted the continuous fall in the standards of the Indian Rupee in terms of the US Dollars as a huge matter of concern. Rupee underwent a fall for four consecutive sessions and is settled at present at an all-time low of 79.90, on Thursday it recovered for a meager 7 paise. However, the main reason behind the development is directed toward a strong American currency overseas and the outflows of foreign exchanges.

News Agency PTI in one of its reports mentioned the rupee took a fall of 9 paise to close at its historic low of 79.90 against the US Dollar. However, Rupee breached the 80 mark briefly. Bloomberg in its Wednesday report presented the Rupee standards at 79.8788 against the American dollar.
