    Indian Rupee pared gains from the previous session in thin trade, ahead of the Fed minutes release later today. Dollar demand from importers caused the rupee to slump in early trade, after which it recovered briefly as few exporters sold the greenback. However, tepid volumes due to caution over the Fed minutes and a local holiday tomorrow led to a choppy session, with the rupee eventually closing lower by 0.25 at ~73.61 levels.
