  • Rupee falls by 13 paise against dollar in early trade

    Published on August 10, 2010

    Rajya Sabha was adjourned till 1200 noon on Tuesday following clashes between treasury benches and Opposition BJP which wanted suspension of Question Hour to discuss Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee’s alleged support to Maoists at her Lalgarh rally.

    When the House met for the day, Leader of Opposition Arun Jaitley said, “I have given a notice for suspension of Question Hour to discuss a matter of serious importance.”

    He was, however, not allowed to speak further by Congress members who demanded that the listed questions be taken up first.

    The rupee on Tuesday lost 13 paise to trade at 46.25 against the US currency due to increased dollar demand from importers amid weak equity markets.

    Dealers said dollar strengthened against major world currencies in global markets, which also weighed on the rupee.

    Increased demand for dollar from importers and weak equity markets dampened the rupee sentiment.

    The rupee had ended higher by 3 paise at 46.12/13 a dollar on Monday.
