NEW DELHI (Reuters) - The depreciating rupee is a "matter of concern", Trade Minister Anand Sharma said on Monday after a meeting with industry bodies regarding a decline in industrial production.

The rupee has dropped more than 16 percent against the U.S. dollar since July, making it Asia's worst performing currency this year.
