Besides, sustained foreign capital outflows kept pressure on the rupee, forex dealers said. However, a higher opening in the domestic equity market and the dollar's weakness against other currencies overseas capped the losses, they added.

The rupee had lost 26 paise to close at more than one-month low of 65.75 against the US dollar yesterday on fresh demand for the American currency from banks and importers amid higher greenback in overseas markets.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex recovered by 111.32 points, or 0.422 percent, at 26,415.52 in morning trade today.
