Abstract: The paper analyses the role of exchange rate in determining the export behaviour of Textiles and Clothing (T&C) sector. The study found an inverse relationship between the rises in exchange rate and exports. This suggests that the devaluation of Indian rupee has not helped to boost the exports of T&C sector. The findings further indicate the significant role of demand factor in determining the export growth. The study argues that exchange rate intervention alone may not be the right solution for export promotion; therefore government should not place much emphasis on devaluing the exchange rate as a policy option to promote export competitiveness.
