India's foreign exchange reserves shot up by $960.2 million to $280.17 billion on the back of a healthy rise in currency assets in the week ended July 26, Reserve Bank said.
The total reserves had slid by $985 million to $279.20 billion in the previous reporting week.
Foreign currency assets (FCAs), a major component of the forex reserves, were up by $914.1 million to $252.05 billion for the week under review, the apex bank said.
FCAs, expressed in US dollar terms, include the effect of appreciation or depreciation of the non-US currencies, such as the euro, pound and yen, held in the reserves.
