How does GBP trade against INR historically?
From 2002 through to 2008, the value of the pound fluctuated between roughly 75 and 85 rupees. During the financial crisis, the pound dropped heavily against the rupee, falling from 83.94 in October 2008 to 67.56 by January 2009.
As the UK economy slowed down after the crisis, its exchange rate dropped to 65 rupees in 2010 and held steady for about a year. However over the next five years the value of the pound rose against most major currencies, including the rupee. When Brexit was announced the British Pound weakened and hit a low of 81 rupees in May 2017. Since then the British Pound has recovered and now buys around 99 rupees.
