The rupee lost 12 paise to Rs 49.19 per US dollar in early trade on the Interbank Foreign Exchange today amid a lower opening in the domestic stock market and the dollar gaining ground against the euro overseas.

The rupee had gained 38 paise to close at Rs 49.07/08 against the US currency in yesterday's trade on dollar-selling by banks and exporters amid a sharp rise in the domestic equity market.

Meanwhile, the Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark Sensex was down by 16.40 points, or 0.10 per cent, at 16,507.63 in opening trade today.
