Forex dealers attributed the fall in the rupee to dollar's gains against other currencies overseas and increased demand for the American unit from oil importers.

The rupee had slipped 18 paise to close at 61.94 against the dollar on rising demand for the US currency from importers.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose by 41.68 points, or 0.14 percent, to 28,541.22 in morning trade Tuesday.
