Foreign capital outflows also affected the rupee value against the dollar, a forex dealer said. The Indian unit resumed lower at 61.94 per dollar as against the last weekend's level of 61.77 at the Interbank Foreign Exchange (Forex) Market.
It hovered in a restricted range of 61.90 and 61.95 before quoting 61.92 per dollar at 1000 hours. In the New York market, the ICE US Dollar Index recorded its largest weekly gain in five weeks last Friday after a blockbuster non-farm payrolls number showed that US economic growth has been even more robust than economists had estimated.
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex declined by 19.74 points or 0.07 percent to 28,438.36 in early trade.
