In order to facilitate international trade, Sri Lanka has agreed to utilize the Indian Rupee (INR) and this shortly occurs after the Indian government announced it was looking into ways to include nations who are particularly short on dollars in the Indian rupee trade settlement process. The Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) stated that it is awaiting RBI’s permission before designating the Indian rupee as Sri Lanka’s official foreign currency. For trading in INR, their banks allegedly opened special rupee trading accounts known as Special Vostro rupee accounts or SVRA.
