This was shortly after the breakdown of the monetary union between Malaysia and Brunei. Before the currency, Singapore used various currencies like the Straits Dollar, Malayan Dollar, and British Borneo Dollar. Initially pegged to the British Pound, the Singapore Dollar later pegged to the USD before being linked to a basket of currencies. Since 1985, the Monetary Authority of Singapore has allowed the dollar to float within a range of foreign exchange rates to control inflation and support exports. By 2016, the SGD accounted for 1.8% of the daily trade volume. Singapore To INR Calculator
