Rupee down 30 paise to 62.13 against dollar in early trade
Mumbai: The rupee fell by 30 paise to trade at 62.13 against the US dollar in early trade today at the Interbank Foreign Exchange market on strong demand for the American currency from importers.

The domestic unit had lost 58 paise to close at 61.83 against the dollar in the previous session on weak local stocks and sustained demand from importers for the greenback.

Besides, dollar's strength against other Asian currencies overseas on speculation the US Federal Reserve may scale back its stimulus programme weighed on the rupee, dealers said.

They said negative domestic fundamentals, such as weak Industrial production data which contracted by 1.8 percent in October this year and retail inflation climbing to a nine-month high of 11.24 percent in November, too put pressure on the rupee.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex fell by 163.25 points, or 0.78 percent, to 20,762.36 in early trade.
