Forex dealers said a lower opening at the domestic equity market also put pressure on the rupee.

The rupee had gained 31 paise to close at over one-week high of Rs. 53.86 in Monday's trade on sustained dollar selling by exporters.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex fell by 75.34 points, or 0.39%, to 19,256.35 in early trade on Tuesday.
