    It is "valuation". The valuation of the rupee and the dollar has changed by 15%.

    I would say it is "compared to/with" or "relative to", and is quite common to describe many numerical relationships. If you plot a graph you can describe what it shows by saying it is a graph of [y-axis label] against [x-axis label], such as speed against time or pressure against temperature, for example

    You often encounter "vs. the dollar" or "versus the dollar." The rupee's value feel 15% against (compared to) the value of the dollar, as measured by their exchange rate.
