This article examines interlinkages between four major exchange rates, namely, USDâ€“INR, EURâ€“INR, GBPâ€“INR and JPYâ€“INR in terms of returns and volatility spillovers using a vector autoregressive-multivariate GARCHâ€“BEKK framework. In addition, we analyse the impact of RBI intervention on the returns, volatility and covariance of these exchange rates. The study finds significant bidirectional causality-in-mean and causality-in-variance between all four exchange rates. The estimation results suggest that RBI intervention in the form of net purchase of dollars leads to depreciation of INR vis-Ã -vis USD, EUR, GBP and JPY. Furthermore, we find that RBI intervention not only significantly affects the volatility of INR vis-Ã -vis USD, EUR and GBP but also explains significant amount of covariance between USDâ€“INR and the other three exchange rates. JEL Classification: C32, G15, E58, F31
