    India's foreign exchange reserves rose by USD 2.69 billion to USD 312.90 billion on the back of healthy jump in foreign currency assets (FCAs) in the week ended June 3.

    The forex reserves had increased by USD 1.68 billion to 310.21 billion in the previous reporting week.

    FCAs, the largest component of the total reserves, shot up by USD 2.035 billion to USD 280.91 billion for the week ended June 3, the Reserve Bank said in its weekly data released today.
