Indian rupee (INR) to British pound (GBP) exchange rate chart and trend analysis based on real data sourced directly from UK currency suppliers
Our British pound to Indian rupee chart plots the actual Indian rupee buyback rates offered by our panel of UK currency providers at the end of each day, so you can see the historical performance of the Indian rupee against the pound and monitor fluctuations in the exchange rate over time.
This page shows the Indian rupee to pound exchange rate, not the Indian rupee buyback rate advertised in our Indian rupee buyback comparisons. Both rates are the same, but the buyback rate is displayed in a different format due to the way UK currency suppliers advertise their buyback rates. Learn more
This annual exchange rate summary provides a detailed breakdown of the performance of the Indian rupee against the British pound over the past several years so you can put today's Indian rupee buyback rates into context:
Exchange rates can be displayed in different ways depending on the context. There's the Indian rupee to pound exchange rate, and the Indian rupee buyback rate. The two are in fact the same; they are just displayed differently.
The Indian rupee to pound exchange rate corresponds to the value of one Indian rupee in British pounds. For example, a Indian rupee to pound rate of 0.0105 means one Indian rupee is worth 0.0105 pounds.
In contrast, the Indian rupee buyback rate corresponds to the amount of Indian rupees you'd have to exchange to get one pound. For example, a Indian rupee buyback rate of 95 means you'd have to exchange 95 Indian rupees to get one pound.
UK currency suppliers prefer to show the Indian rupee buyback rate instead of the Indian rupee to pound exchange rate, so we follow the same format in our Indian rupee comparisons. However, on this page, we use the Indian rupee to pound exchange rate since this is what the data is intended to show.
The two rates are interchangeable: to convert the Indian rupee buyback rate into the actual Indian rupee to pound rate, just divide 1 by the Indian rupee buyback rate, e.g.: 1 / 95 = 0.0105.
