Hello Apurva, I had a query ; since India is facing current account deficit for last subsequent quarters so in such a case can devaluing currency help in boosting exports? AND VERY NICE EXPLANATION of concepts :D

Devaluing currency surely boost the exports, but for a better economy currency should be stable.. agar devalue kr denge toh imports mehenge ho jaayenge... usse ho skta hai ki deficit aur barh jaaye... toh upar neeche pe nahi, stable krne waali policy is good.
Mam, What is the difference between Devaluation and Depreciation ? and How does Devaluation makes exports cheaper ?

I googled mam. Suppose you live in the US. The Indian rupee drops from USD/INR=40 to USD/INR =60. Karbonn makes a cellphone in India and decides a price of 12000 rupees. To you, an American, the price has dropped from $300 to $200. Hence the drop of rupee incentivises you to buy Indian goods. Is it correct ?

what u had explained is an example of weakening of India rupee against Dollar which can be cause due to depreciation or devaluation. Depreciation :- decrease in rupee value due to market force in Forex market. Devaluation :- decrease in rupee value by government not due to Forex market.
