The country's foreign exchange reserves surged by USD 2.539 billion to touch an all-time high of USD 355.947 billion in the week ended March 18, on account of rise in foreign currency assets (FCAs), the Reserve Bank said today.

The reserves had touched a high of USD 355.46 billion in the week ended June 19 last year.

In the previous week, the reserves had increased by USD 2.543 billion to USD 353.407 billion.

FCAs, a major component of overall reserves, increased by USD 2.505 billion to USD 332.504 billion in the reporting week, RBI said in a release here.

FCAs, expressed in dollar terms, include the effect of appreciation and depreciation of non-US currencies, such as the euro, pound and the yen, held in the reserves.
