Banking expert Asad Rizvi said that a dip in the rupee value was expected before the end of the fiscal year. The dollar buying spree was apparently triggered over foreign payments, he added.

Rizvi said the dollar was at Rs168.05 on June 30, 2020 which later dropped as low as to Rs152.90 from where now it is three percent dearer.
