TT Buying Rate

This rate is applied for purchase of foreign currency by banks when the banks in India have already obtained the cover in India. Thus all foreign inward remittances which are made payable in India are converted by applying this rate. A mail transfer issued by a bank in Dubai for US $ 10,000 drawn on any commercial bank having branch at the overseas destination will be converted into rupees at TT buying rate. Reading Rates-The rates announced by the banks every day morning are card rates.

Reputed importers can always bargain with the bank for improvement in the card rates for reducing their rupee liability on conversion of foreign currency into Indian rupees. Also a distinction is made between spot rates and forward rates. Spot rates are applicable on the day of transaction, whereas forward rates are fixed in advance for a transaction that will mature at a specified date or during a specified period in future imports.
