Forex dealers said that besides dollar's gains against other currencies overseas, fresh demand from importers for the American unit put pressure on the rupee.
    
The rupee appreciated by 10 paise to close at a nearly six-week high of 60.29 against US dollar in the previous session tracking a solid rally in local shares and continued dollar selling by exporters and some banks.
    
Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex retreated from record highs by falling 45.92, or 0.17 percent, to 27,273.93 in the morning trade on Tuesday.
