Forex dealers said besides the dollar's gains against other currencies overseas, heavy demand from oil importers for the American currency and a weak opening in the domestic stock market continued to put pressure on the rupee.
The domestic unit had plummeted to 13-month low of 63.53 by falling 59 paise against the dollar in Tuesday's trade due to heavy demand for US currency from importers and some banks amid falling oil prices and chaos in stock markets.
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex declined by 117.04 points, or 0.44 percent, to 26,664.40.
