PM Modi to hold meeting with officials to discuss rupee fall - government source

(Reuters) - Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold a meeting with finance ministry officials on Friday to discuss the fall in the rupee and other economic issues, a government source told Reuters.

The rupee is Asia's weakest currency in 2018, down more than 12 percent on a widening current account deficit and higher oil prices.
