trade due to increased demand for the US currency from banks and importers amid a weak opening in local equities.

Dealers said besides increased demand for the American currency from importers, dollar's strength against other currencies overseas after the US Federal Reserve hinted that the central bank could hike interest rates earlier than expected, mainly put pressure on the local unit.

The rupee had gained 24 paise to close at nearly one-week high of 60.95 against the dollar yesterday following selling of the US currency by exporters and some banks, amid sustained heavy capital inflows.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex fell by 86.44 points, or 0.39 per cent, to 21,746.42 in early trade today.
