Forex dealers attributed the rupee's fall to increased demand for US currency from importers but dollar's weakness against other units and higher opening in the domestic equity market capped the fall to some extent.


The rupee on Monday depreciated by 12 paise to close at one-week low of 60.94 against the greenback on month-end dollar demand from importers and steep fall in local equities.


Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose by 50.79 points, or 0.18 percent, to 26,826.48 in morning trade on Tuesday.
