Forex dealers said besides dollar gains against other Asian currencies, a weak opening in the stock market amid foreign fund outflows put pressure on the rupee.

The rupee had lost nine paise to 53.28 against the US dollar in Monday's trade due to renewed dollar demand and firm global cues, amid weak local equities.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex declined by 88.49 points, or 0.44%, to 19,662.70.
