May, 30th 2007

The commerce ministry has expressed its concern over the rising rupee and has taken up the issue with the Reserve Bank of India, the commerce minister Kamal Nath said on Tuesday.

The minister indicated that the ministry was seriously contemplating the launch of a refund scheme that will provide relief for industries such as handicrafts which have no import component.

The minister said that the ministry has also initiated talks with the Federation of Indian Exporters Organisation (FIEO) and various business and industry chambers on this issue.
