Mumbai: India's forex reserves rose by $1.385 billion to $314.922 billion in the week to June 20 on account of rise in currency assets.

Foreign currency assets (FCAs), a major constituent of the overall reserves, surged by $1.372 billion to $287.961 billion in the period under review, Reserve Bank said in its weekly statement on Friday.
