Besides, a weak opening in the domestic equity market put pressure, dealers said.
     
A weakness in the US dollar against major world currencies in the global market, however, limited the rupee fall, they said.
    
The domestic currency had gained 1 paisa to close at 64.80 in the previous session on selling of dollars by banks and exporters in view of a firm trend in the stock market.
    
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex fell 27.97 points, or 0.10 percent, to 27,336.95 in morning trade today.
