Indian rupee falls 6 paise against dollar

NEW DELHI: The rupee weakened 6 paise to quote at 66.45 against the dollar in early trade on Wednesday on increased month-end demand for the American currency from importers and banks.

The dollar was firm against major global currencies, which dampened rupee sentiment, but a higher opening of the domestic equity market capped the losses, dealers said. The rupee had gained one paisa to end at 66.39 on Tuesday on fag-end selling of the U.S. currency by banks.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose 42.21 points, or 0.16 per cent, to 26,002.24 in early trade.
