Exporters to shine on weak rupee

The Indian rupee fell to a 13-month low on Tuesday against the US dollar. The rupee closed at 63.53/54, a level not seen since November 2013. Software exporters earn more than 60 per cent of their revenue in dollars and gain every time the greenback strengthens as their expenses are almost entirely in rupees. Besides software firms such as TCS, Infosys, Wipro and HCL Tech, weaker rupee will also help other export earners in the textile space, such as Raymond, Arvind and Alok Industries.
