Mumbai: The country's forex reserves rose by a whopping $4.036 billion to life-time high of $379.310 billion in the week ended May 19, helped by a surge in the foreign currency assets, the Reserve Bank said.

Last week, the reserves had declined by $443.6 million to $375.27 billion.

Foreign currency assets (FCAs), a major component of the overall reserves, increased by $3.996 billion to $355.097 billion in the reporting week, RBI said.

Expressed in US dollar terms, FCAs 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 stable at $20.438 billion. The special drawing rights with the International Monetary Fund increased by $15 million to $1.469 billion.

The country's reserve position with the IMF, too, rose by $25.2 million to $2.305 billion, the RBI said.
