Mumbai: The huge fall in rupee has been described by the State Bank chairman Arundhati Bhattacharya, as being propelled by growing fears about the crisis affecting China and does not indicate any problems with the Indian economy, according to a report in Economic Times.

She said: “The current strain on the rupee is triggered by global issues as there are some amount of apprehension as to where China is going. Obviously it’ll take a little time before we get the floor.”

The markets crashed on Monday and the stock indices fell nine pins. Following this the rupee fell 82 paise to 66.65 to the dollar. The Sensex and Nifty had to take the blows as well. The Sensex was 5.94 per cent down at 25,741.56 and the Nifty registered 7,809 around 5.92 per cent down.

The cumulative market value of listed stocks that denote the total investor wealth, fell below Rs 100 trillion mark.

Bhattacharya called this blood bath in the market as being “triggered by facts then it is much more difficult to stop. But I do believe that this is more triggered by apprehension (over China) than facts” as per the ET report.

She added that investors will realize that India is a good spot as all its macro parameters are doing well.
