The dollar's gains against other currencies overseas also put pressure on the local unit but a record opening in the domestic equity market limited the losses, forex dealers said.

The rupee had lost 3 paise to end at 61.87 against the greenback in yesterday's trade on month-end dollar demand from importers.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex spurted by 326.61 points, or 1.14 per cent, to hit a new life-time high of 28,765.52 in opening trade.
