The annual rate of growth by core consumer prices, which exclude food and energy prices, also slowed to 3.2% in November from a downwardly revised 3.4% in October. On Friday, rupee appreciated by 11 paise to settle at 83.16 against the US dollar and is currently quoting at 83.19, down marginally on the day. INR hit 83.10 per US dollar in intraday moves. The local stock markets are well supported with the benchmark index NIFTY50 hovering around 21400 mark. Meanwhile, India`s foreign exchange reserves rose for the fifth straight week, reaching an over 20-month high of $615.97 billion as of December 15, according to the data released by the Reserve Bank of India on Friday.
