Forex dealers attributed the fall in the rupee to the dollar's strength against other global currencies and increased demand for the green back from importers.

However, a higher opening in the domestic stock market capped the rupee's fall.

The rupee on Friday had lost 7 paise to 62.31 on fresh demand for US dollar from banks and importers as the greenback firmed up overseas on upbeat US jobs data.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex regained the 29,000-mark by rising 125.65 points, or 0.43 percent, to 29,005.03 in morning trade on Monday.
