UAE Dirham Rates in Hyderabad

Finding the UAE Dirham exchange rates today in Hyderabad used to be a challenge until BookMyForex came into the picture. But not anymore…Live and real time UAE Dirham exchange rates today in Hyderabad are now available on BookMyForex for currency exchange. You also have the option to lock-in the UAE Dirham exchange rates today in Hyderabad to exchange currency by using the “Freeze the rate” option on the website. Other currency exchangers and websites use the base rate or interbank rate as “today’s AED rate in Hyderabad”, which isn’t actually the rate at which currency is exchanged. Forex dealers keep a significant margin over and above “today’s AED rate in Hyderabad” to hedge against any AED price fluctuation in the global market. So the concept of “today’s AED rate in Hyderabad” is in reality just a farce and a means to exploit the customers. Unfortunately it also is a standard practice in the market.

History of the currency

In year 1966, when the India Rupee devaluation affected the value of Gulf Rupee, the United Arab Emirates introduced its own currency. Actually, in early 20th century, the United Arab Emirates used to transact in British Sovereign gold coins and even Indian Rupee was in circulation. During the Rupee devaluation , first of all Saudi Riyal was adopted as an interim currency and then gradually Qatar Riyal and Dubai Riyal came into use except in Abu Dhabi which had Bahrain Dinar as their currency. It was year 1973 when United Arab Emirates Dirham was established and came into usage completely.
