The rupee will remain a regional underperformer in 2012 due to the country's fragile external position, Royal Bank of Scotland said.

"July-September FY12 (fiscal year ending March 2012) external data underscores our longstanding view that the INR would remain a regional underperformer in 2012," RBS said in a note dated Monday.

The size of the current account deficit, short term external debt and the high share of portfolio capital and external borrowings in external reserves highlight a fragile external position, RBS said.
