How does the Australian dollar trade against the rupee historically?

In 1966, the Australian dollar was introduced to replace the Australian pound. At the time, the Aussie dollar was maintained under the Bretton Woods monetary system that established rules for the commercial and economic relationships among the US, Canada, Western Europe, Australia and Japan.

Under the Bretton Woods agreement, currencies were pegged to the price of gold. But the Australian dollar was effectively pegged to the British pound with an exchange rate of 0.8 dollars per pound.

From the Great Recoinage in 1816 until World War I in 1914, the Indian rupee was also pegged to the British pound at 4.80 rupees per pound — on par with the US dollar. However, when the Aussie dollar was introduced, the rupee was valued at 4.79 rupees per pound. Later wars in China in 1962 and Pakistan in 1965 led to a significant deficit on India’s budget, which forced the Indian government to devalue the rupee.

Over the last 10 years, the rupee has fluctuated between 34.6 rupees and 56.4 rupees per Australian dollar. Experts say this is due to stagnant reforms and declining foreign investment.

What affects AUD > INR exchange rates?

Five economic and financial indicators affect how the Australian dollar trades with the rupee: the country’s GDP, retail sales, industrial production, relative inflation rates and trade balances. This could be seen in early 2013, when the rupee depreciated due to stagnant reforms and declining foreign investment.

Less aggressive factors are consumer confidence, the strength of other currencies, investor speculation and day-to-day news about natural disasters, elections and new government policies.
