RBI allows rupee to seek "correct" value

[Details] The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) seems to have changed its strategy in allowing the rupee to fall against the dollar. The central bank is no longer aggressive in propping up the rupee, but has kept away from the foreign exchange market, allowing the rupee to seek its own "correct" value. The RBI has allowed the value of the rupee to fall by around 16 paise in the last three days to Rs 36.53 against the dollar.
