Earlier today, the Reserve Bank of India released balance of payments (BoP) data for April-June 2016 on its website (www.rbi.org.in). On the basis of these data, the sources of variation in foreign exchange reserves during April-June, 2016 have been compiled.

Sources of Variation in Foreign Exchange Reserves: April-June 2016

The sources of variation underlying the increase in the foreign exchange reserves during April-June 2016 are set out in Table 1.

On a balance of payments basis (i.e., excluding valuation effects), the foreign exchange reserves increased by US$ 7.0 billion during April-June 2016 as compared with an accretion of US$ 11.4 billion during April-June 2015. The foreign exchange reserves in nominal terms (including the valuation effects) increased by US$ 3.3 billion during April-June 2016 as compared with an increase of US$ 14.4 billion during the same period last year (Table 2).
