GBP to INR interbank exchange rate = 90.4395

Right now the GBP/INR interbank exchange rate is 90.4395. It’s also called the mid-market rate or just the mid-rate and is the rate that banks use when trading large amounts of foreign currencies with one another.

It's the reference rate we use to calculate how much you are being charged to convert Indian Rupee to British Pound Sterling.

Looking for INR travel money? Then it is important to note that the Indian Rupee is a closed currency. Which means that you will not be able to purchase the currency before departure and will need to buy it upon arrival. For more information and a full list of closed currencies read our guide: What is a closed currency?

A good solution for closed currencies is to use a pre-paid travel card to avoid carrying large amounts of cash and also minimise ATM fees - Compare Travel Cards

This GBP/INR Converter calculates equivalent British Pound Sterling to Indian Rupee amounts at the market mid-rate. You can also enter your own rates to find out the percentage difference to the latest market rates you are being charged.

Why can't I just get the GBP/INR market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

The GBP/INR mid-rate is the rate you will see Quoted on Google or the News, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the GBP / INR was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Currency news and forecasts for British Pound Sterling and Indian Rupee

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as the value of a currency must always be quoted relative to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the GBP vs INR, you should pay attention to both British Pound Sterling and Indian Rupee news and forecasts.

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

Update 14-April: The pound hovered between US$1.30 and US$1.31 (in line with 3-month averages) after the EU granted the UK a Brexit extension until the end of October. No-deal risk is gone for now and anything is possible, including a new British prime minister, a general election and/or second referendum.

Experts at MUFG said in April that sterling would likely trade between US$1.30 and US$1.34 until more clarity emerged.

If an election is called, the pound could depreciate to US$1.24, a UBS analyst said, due to “heightened uncertainty” (the opposition Labour party is consistently ahead in the polls).

Goldman Sachs said in April that sterling was set for a “big finish” (higher) once the gridlock in the UK parliament ends and a deal is agreed and certainty found.

Earlier this year, currency analysts at HSBC estimated that the pound would be valued at levels near US$1.10 in the event of no-deal, near US$1.45 with a deal and at US$1.55 if Brexit is cancelled.

Indian Rupee (INR) - Market news and forecasts

In the second week of March, the rupee was little changed on the year (<1 percent difference) against the dollar at rates near ₹70. It was, however, considerably higher than its record low of ₹74.52, achieved in October. The rupee hasn’t done badly in 2019 considering the 23 percent rise in the price of oil (India’s biggest import). Political uncertainty (never good for a currency’s valuation) is likely to emerge as we approach May’s election. A tough battle is expected for current Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party. Should the BJP be defeated, “the rupee could potentially spike to 74,” a Radobank economist said. In March, the Economic Times reported the results of a poll of 50 foreign exchange experts, who collectively estimated a year-end USD/INR rate of ₹71.3. This differed from January’s forecast from the Fitch ratings agency, which said it expects ₹75 on the basis of further current account deterioration and tighter financing conditions.
