The rupee fell to its lowest in over 8 months on Thursday, heading for a fifth consecutive session of falls, as the dollar rallied at the prospect the Federal Reserve might scale back its stimulus programme this year.

The NSE index Nifty also fell as much as 2.2% amid US stimulus worries and a weak China manufacturing survey.

Rangarajan said according to his "reading", the US Federal Reserve will continue with the stimulus measures.
