Forex dealers said dollar strengthening against other currencies in the global market also put pressure on the rupee but sustained rise in domestic equities capped the fall.

The domestic currency had closed higher by 31 paise at 61.85 on Friday after a rally in local equities and fresh sales of US currency by exporters. Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex rose by 100.86 points, or 0.48 percent, at 21,294.44 in morning trade on Monday.
