The Reserve Bank of India recently published the circulars detailing the mechanism for international trade settlement in Indian Rupee (INR). This measure was put in place to assuage the difficulties faced by companies following fluctuations in the cross-border currency rates post the Russia-Ukraine war, macroeconimic conditions in various economies around the world facing rising inflation, the vagaries of oil prices and various other factors.
Introducing this measure by RBI will increase India’s trade with countries facing US dollar shortage. It is also expected to pave the way for the INR’s acceptance as a global currency. The facility will also promote growth of global trade with emphasis on exports from India
Indian corporates, large and small, need to assess the impact of these facilities on their overseas trade and understand the processes which banks and financial institutions have put in place for facilitating such trade. This new arrangement is expected to have impact the following aspects of trade
- Invoicing: All exports and imports under this arrangement may be denominated and invoiced in Rupee (INR).
- Exchange Rate: Exchange rate between the currencies of the two trading partner countries may be market determined.
- Settlement: The settlement of trade transactions under this arrangement shall take place in INR in accordance to the procedures laid down in the relevant circular issued by RBI.
Already, SBI has announced initiation of transactions with Russia, Iran and a host of other major trade partner countries of India.
