Forex Reserves – India must now put its massive forex reserves to better use

forex reserves
During the week, India’s forex reserves crossed the psychological $500 billion mark. India has come a long way from having just 15 days of imports as forex reserves in 1991 when she had to pledge gold to the Bank of England. Now there is a problem of plenty!
Forex reserves ranking
For the first time since the forex chest began to be recorded, India entered the top-5 in terms of forex reserves. India ranks behind China, Japan, Switzerland and Russia and has overtaken Taiwan, Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia. KSA, at one point of time held over $750 billion in its forex reserves but 5 years of weak oil prices meant that Saudi Arabia has been forced to draw heavily on its forex reserves despite cutting down on many of its welfare outlays. India can hope to overtake Russia soon. China leads the rankings with $3.5 trillion in reserves.
Why are reserves building up?
There are multiple reasons why the forex reserves are building up. Firstly, the sharp fall in oil import bill has brought down the trade deficit by more than 50% on a monthly basis. Secondly, the forex remittances from NRIs have been extremely robust with most of the world markets offering either zero or negative rates of returns. Lastly, RBI intervention in the forex markets has reduced substantially and that has also helped forex reserves build-up.

Brexit: As referendum draws near, here's why India is on its toes.
The D-day has arrived - the day Britons will decide whether to stay on or leavethe European Union.
A victory for "out" could unleash turmoil on financial markets.
Indeed a decision to exit will have a deep impact on the global economy and in turn on India.
According to the consultancy firm, key sectors attracting Indian investment include healthcare, agritech,food, and drink.
IANS, meanwhile, says that Britain ranks 12th in terms of India's bilateral trade with individual countries.
Access to European markets is therefore a key driver for Indian companies coming to the UK.
So clearly, India will see a major impact, if the UK indeed decides to leave the EU.
What is required in such a scenario is forex reserves.
The finance ministry said on Wednesday the country has sufficient foreign exchange reserves to handle any impact.
The RBI's intervention by selling dollars had averted a deeper decline.
In case of BREXIT later this week, it would likely allow any US Dollar strength to play out.
3/USD today," Bank of America Merill Lynch said on Monday.
"An initial analysis indicates that the impact on India's technology sector may be mixed; clearly negative in the short term and harder to discern in the longer term with either scenario having some positive and some negative points," Nasscom said.
With the pound expected to fall 20 percent in case of a Brexit, Indian companies with sizeable presence in the UK will have to bear the brunt.
Apart from these, the Indian Depository Receipts of StanChart are also likely to get impacted negatively.
As Deloitte explains in the note, one of the key factors, among others, that attracts Indian enterprises and their investment into the UK is the gateway that it provides to the EU.
The domestic capital market has a robust surveillance and risk management framework in place and it has been beefed up to deal with any eventuality emanating from the 'Brexit' referendum, a senior official said.
