Dealers also attributed the rupee's fall to increased demand for the US currency from importers and banks.

However, a higher opening in the domestic equity market capped the losses.

On Friday, the rupee had ended down 22 paise to end at a fresh one-month low of 65.16 against the US dollar due to frantic demand for the American unit from importers and corporates.

Foreign investors had pulled out around Rs 529 crore from equity markets on Friday.
