What was that again?

Over the last two years, India has been inflating at roughly 10% per annum. The dollar has been inflating at roughly 2% per annum. So, it is only natural that the exchange rate will depreciate; the nominal exchange rate which is correcting from the fact that the rupee has been losing value faster than the dollar. By my own calculation compared to two years ago to now, say two years ago Rs 44-45 now I would have expected it to be between Rs 51-54, roughly in that range-Kaushik Basu, Chief Economic Advisor to GoI said in an interview
