The rupee had shed 8 paise to close at 62.09 against the dollar in Wednesday's trade. Dealers attributed the rupee's fall to dollar gains against other currencies overseas, but a higher opening in the domestic equity market capped the fall.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex on Thursday surged by 157.59 points, or 0.75 percent, to 21,017.45 in morning trade.
