Rupee weakens by 11 paise against dollar in early trade
The rupee weakened by 11 paise to 68.57 against the dollar in early trade on Monday at the Interbank Foreign Exchange market on month-end demand for the American currency from importers.
Forex dealers said a lower opening of the domestic equity market also weighed on the rupee but the US dollar's weakness against some currencies overseas capped the fall.
