Rupee down 26 paise against dollar in early trade

Mumbai (PTI): The rupee today weakened by 26 paise to 62.40 against the US dollar in early trade on the Interbank Foreign Exchange market due to appreciation of the greenback against other currencies overseas.

Dealers attributed the rupee fall to dollar gains against other currencies overseas.

The rupee had gained 36 paise to close at 62.14 against the dollar yesterday after banks and exporters sold the US currency as it weakened overseas.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex rose by 155.35 points, or 0.76 per cent, at 20,575.61 in early trade today.
