Forex dealers said besides dollar's gains against euro in the overseas markets, a weak opening in the stock market also put pressure on the domestic currency.

The BSE benchmark Sensex fell by 61.35 points, or 0.30%, to 18,480.96 in early trade.

The rupee had gained 29 paise to close at a four-month high of 54.01 against the US dollar on Monday on robust capital inflows amid Reserve Bank infusing Rs. 17,000 crore into system by way of a cut in Cash Reserve Ratio.
