USD to INR interbank exchange rate = 69.4202

Right now the USD/INR interbank exchange rate is 69.4202. 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 United States Dollar.

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 USD/INR Converter calculates equivalent United States Dollar 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 USD/INR market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

The USD/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 USD / 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.

The closer your final exchange rate is to the market USD/INR midrate the better deal you are getting.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.

The three things you need in order to get a good USD to INR exchange rate

  1. Know the latest USD/INR market mid-rate. The closer your final exchange rate is to this real market rate the better deal you are getting. You should also judge how the current rate compares to the historic rate over the past 10 years.

  3. Review up-to-date Currency News and Forecasts for both the and currencies, if available.

Currency news and forecasts for United States Dollar 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 USD vs INR, you should pay attention to both United States Dollar and Indian Rupee news and forecasts.

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

In the third week of April the Dollar Index was rallying strongly towards the mid-97s, slightly below major resistance at 97.70, a break of which would be massively positive for the greenback. The index was up 1.7 percent year-to-date.

The dollar’s strength comes in spite of a dovish surprise in March from the Federal Reserve, which ditched two interest rate hikes from its 2019 projections. Fortunately for dollar holders, the rest of the world has problems and other important central banks also turned dovish, removing much of the incentive for selling USD.

Bloomberg research warned in April of potential for a large upcoming move in the US dollar, up or down. Over the past quarter-century, three prominent troughs in the JPMorgan Global FX Volatility Index were followed by dollar moves over 6-month periods worth 10-15 percent. The index was trading in mid-April at a 5-year low.

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.
