At 10:26 am (0456 GMT), the partially convertible rupee was at 58.24/25 per dollar, after hitting 58.27 and down further from 58.12 levels before the finance minister started speaking.

The unit had ended at 57.79/80 on Wednesday.

"He speaks about concerns, the market is already concerned and so far there are no definite plans or decisions," said Hari Chandramgethen, head of foreign exchange trading at South Indian Bank.
