Strong Greenback Leads Indian Rupee Depreciates Slightly Against US Dollar

The Indian rupee fell three pence versus the US dollar in the morning session on Wednesday.

The Indian rupee saw a slight depreciation of 3 paise against the US dollar in the morning session on Wednesday. 

This movement can be attributed to the strength of the American currency in overseas markets and a subdued trend in domestic equities.
