Rupee down 21 paise against dollar
Mar 12 2014 , Mumbai
Increased demand for the dollar from importers and a weak opening of the domestic equity market also put pressure on the rupee, forex dealers said.
The rupee had closed down by 9 paise to 60.94 per dollar in yesterday's trade which was in line with a fall in local stocks after five straight sessions of gains.
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex fell by 20.59 points, or 0.09 per cent, at 21,805.83 in early trade today.
