The rupee had closed 14 paise higher at 67.07 against the dollar at the Interbank Foreign Exchange yesterday on sustained selling of dollars by banks and exporters in view of good foreign capital inflows.

Dealers attributed the rupee's fall to increased demand for the US currency. However, a higher opening in the domestic equity market capped the losses.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose 55.38 points, or 0.22 percent, to 24,675.77 in morning trade.
