Mumbai: The rupee depreciated by 54 paise and hit the 71 per dollar mark in early trade Thursday amid strengthening American currency and weak opening in the domestic equity market.

Forex traders said the strength of the US dollar against other overseas currencies and foreign fund outflows weighed on the local unit.
