In the previous week, the reserves had increased by $1.588 billion to $363.146 billion.


A major component of the overall reserves, FCAs declined by $347.1 million to $339.778 billion in the reporting week, the RBI said.


Expressed in US dollar terms, they include the effects of appreciation/depreciation of non-US currencies, such as the euro, pound and the yen held in the reserves.


Gold reserves remained unchanged in the week at $19.248 million, the apex bank said.


The special drawing rights with the International Monetary Fund fell by $5.3 million to $1.442 billion; India's reserve position with the Fund, too, declined by $8.5 million to $2.315 billion, RBI said.
