Dealers said a lower opening in the domestic equity markets also weighed on the Indian currency.

They attributed the rupee's fall to dollar gains against other currencies overseas.

The rupee had logged its biggest fall of the year on Monday by plunging 55 paise to close at over one-month low of 62.91 against the greenback.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex fell by 103.90 points, or 0.37 percent, at 27,782.31 in morning trade on Tuesday.
