Since we were under British rule our rupee was pegged to pounds. From 1927 to 1966, it was 13 rupees = 1 pound. This was maintained until 1966, when the rupee was devalued and pegged to the U.S. dollar at a rate of 7.5 rupees = 1 dollar. This value lasted until the U.S. dollar devalued in 1971.

If you are having a Dollar of 1947, sell it to musium, it will fetch good money today. Otherwise what is a point in knowing - what was the value of Dollar in terms of Indian Rupees, in 1947?

Dollar had no value just around our inependence. Free country India has everything that they had to value: sacrifice, servitude, patience, good administration.
