Key points (Source: Reuters)

INR has recovered nearly 6 percent from the record low of 74.485 reached in October last year. The relief, however, could be short-lived. More than 65 analysts polled between Jan. 8-8 expect the rupee to weaken again.

Two-thirds who gave 12-month forecast expect the INR to trade at more than 70 per dollar.
