Mumbai:

India's foreign exchange reserves rose for a second week to $547.25 billion in the week through Nov. 18, the Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) weekly statistical supplement showed today.

It was a volatile week for rupee, as sharp moves brought it back to trade in the 81-per-dollar-handle from near 80.50.

The currency moved in a narrow band in the week ended Nov 25 to close unchanged at 81.6850.

For the week ended Nov. 11, the country's reserves were at $544.72 billion. Overall, they have declined from $632.7 billion at the beginning of this year, as the RBI has sold a portion of the reserves to ease volatility in the currency markets.
