3. MUMBAI: In what could be a sign of things to come with gushing liquidity coupled with rising optimism about policy reforms in the country after the Rajya Sabha approval for bringing in the Goods & Services Act, the Reserve Bank of India intervened to temper the Indian’s Rupee’s appreciation versus the US dollar, said three currency dealers. Expectations are rising that global investors starved of returns from fixed income investments may raise their investments into the highest yielding emerging market as government’s actions provides them the comfort of prudent economic policies. “Depending on the global risk sentiment we could see fund flows into India continuing in the coming months,” said Brijen Puri, managing director, head of markets, JP Morgan (India). “It would be an opportunity for the RBI to shore up our dollar reserves, which could be used to moderate volatility in future” On Thursday, some state-owned banks were buying dollars in early trades on behalf of the central bank, when the rupee opened stronger by 15 paisa to the greenback. Later, it pared gains to close at 66.92, up 0.10 per cent from 66.99 on Wednesday. The rupee is now expected to trade in the range of 66.50-67.50 per dollar versus 67-68, seen a few weeks ago, dealers said. The implementation of GST from next fiscal, though could be inflationary in the short term, may add to the gross domestic product by as much as 2 percentage point. That coupled with better tax compliance and higher rates on services could bolster the government’s finances. The perennial fear of government’s fiscal being dodgy could also end. “Unanimous decision to amend the constitution to pave way for introduction of GST is a big positive and will renew optimism among foreign investors,” MS Gopikrishnan, head of FX, rates and credit trading at Standard Chartered Bank. “While the rupee market had largely priced in the amendment, higher inflows from overseas investors should help the rupee to appreciate.”
