In this way, the dollar again crossed the Rs160 mark and was available for Rs160.42.
Last month, the world’s dominant currency had reversed the months-long trend of shedding value against the rupee and at one point surged over the Rs161 level with around Rs2.60 gain within a week.
However, the local currency later stemmed the downward movement and regained some of the value that it had lost, pushing the dollar back below the Rs160 level.
