_India's Forex Reserves Climb to $606.859 Billion

Reserve Bank of India reported on December 15 that India’s forex reserves increased by $2.816 billion, to $606.859 Billion in the week ending December 8.

The overall reserves rose by $6.107 billion in the reporting week prior, to $604.042.

The foreign currency assets are expressed in dollar terms and include the appreciation or depreciation in non-US currencies like the euro, the pound, and the yen that are held in the reserves of foreign exchange.

The Reserve Bank of India reported that gold reserves fell by $199 million, to $47.13 Billion, during the past week.

The Special Drawing Rights fell by $63 million, to $18.188 Billion.
