This study is an attempt to understand the dynamics of Indian Rupee fluctuations against US Dollar using yearly observations over the period of 13 years from 2001 to September 2013. In this paper, evolution of exchange rate mechanism from fixed to hybrid exchange rate system in context of India along with the journey of ` since independence has been explored. Further, an attempt has been made to identify the key variables that influence the Indian rupee fluctuations against US Dollar. Finally, Ordinary Least Square (OLS) modeling is done on the log computed variables to know the determinants of the rupee fluctuations against dollar.
