By oneindia staff

New Delhi, June 28: The health of Indian economy seems to be in the "coma" after report stated that rupee crashed to a lifetime low of 69 against the US dollar. The rupee fell to an all-time low against the US dollar on Thursday by plunging 49 paise in early trade as rising crude oil prices deepened concerns about the country's current account deficit and inflation dynamics.

Consistent dollar demand from banks and importers, mainly oil refiners, following higher crude oil prices kept the rupee under pressure, stated a report by PTI. At the interbank foreign exchange market, the rupee opened at 68.87 a dollar against 68.61 previously and sank to 69.10 in morning deals, falling 49 paise, added PTI.
