Indian rupee depreciated 34 paise to 72.79 against the US dollar in early trade at the interbank forex market Monday on foreign fund outflows. The Rupee is likely to be under pressure with the elevated global crude prices. According to reports, Rupee touched 76 level against US Dollar over the next three months.
However, the rupee is unlikely to fall sharply during the day as it is expected to take comfort from soft crude prices.
The rupee opened lower at 72.76 per dollar against previous close of 72.45 and dropped further to quote 34 paise down at 72.79 in opening trade. Traders said increased demand for the US currency from importers and losses in the domestic equity market weighed on the rupee.
Besides, the dollar trading higher against some currencies overseas too put pressure on the rupee, traders added.
