Forex dealers said besides a lower opening in the domestic equity markets, increased demand from importers for the American unit put pressure on the rupee but dollar's weakness against other currencies overseas capped losses.

 

The rupee closed one paisa down at 60.82 against US dollar in the previous session on alternate bouts of demand and supply in Monday's trade.

 

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex fell marginally by 20.66 points, or 0.07 percent, to 27,186.08 in morning trade.
