Besides, a lower opening in the domestic equity market weighed on the local currency but the dollar's weakness against other currencies overseas capped the rupee's losses, forex dealers said.

The rupee had plummeted to over three-month low of 63.32 by losing 50 paise against the US dollar in Thursday's trade on renewed demand for the American currency from banks and importers amid foreign capital outflows in the equity market.
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex fell by 139.29 points, or 0.50 percent, at 27,595.73 in morning trade on Friday.
