Many countries are trying to limit the economic damage by relaxing rules on isolation. However, firm dollar and muted domestic markets prevented further gains • The rupee is expected to depreciate on a strong dollar and risk aversion in domestic markets. Further, the rupee may slip on persistent FII outflows, surge in crude oil prices and month end dollar demand from importers. Additionally, investors will remain vigilant ahead of economic data from country.
