The rise in foreign currency reserves in the week ended July 3 was attributed to the increase in foreign currency assets, a significant part of the total currency reserves. According to the Reserve Bank data, foreign currency assets increased by $ 5.66 billion to $ 473.26 billion during the week.

According to the Reserve Bank, gold reserves rose by $ 495 million to $ 34.02 billion during the week.

At the same time, more than $ 30 billion has been added to the reserves so far this year.
