How does the Indian rupee trade against the British pound historically?

From the Great Recoinage in 1816 until World War I in 1914, the Indian rupee was pegged to the British pound at 4.80 rupees per pound and on par with the US dollar at the time. After WWI, the pound and the rupee both declined against the US dollar due to deficits in trade, capital and budget.

In 1947, India gained its independence from Britain and adopted a fixed-rate currency. The rupee was then valued at 4.79 rupees per pound from 1948 and 1966. Wars in China in 1962 and Pakistan in 1965 led to a significant deficit on India’s budget. This forced the Indian government to devalue the rupee to 3.785 per pound.

Over time the pound has risen against the rupee. By 1996 the rupee was valued as 65 rupees per pound. The rupee fell from 65.17 per pound in May 2010 to more than 100 rupees per pound by 2013. Since 2013, the rupee has stayed within 90 rupees per pound. The UK’s departure from the European Union has had almost no effect on the exchange rate.
