Rupee down 22 paise against US dollar in early trade
Forex dealers said strong foreign fund flows and dollar's gain against other currencies overseas, capped rupee's fall to some extent.
However, a higher opening in the equity market, covered the rupee's losses, they said.
The rupee had ended six paise lower at 53.22 against the dollar in the previous session due to sustained dollar demand after government estimates pegged current fiscal's GDP growth at a decade low of 5 per cent.
Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex rose by 51.70 points, or 0.26 per cent, to 19,632.02 in the early trade today.
