At the Interbank Foreign Exchange (Forex) market, the Indian rupee fell by 10 paise to trade lower at 45.91 a dollar. The domestic currency had shed 16 paise to close at 45.80/81 a dollar in the previous session.

Forex dealers said dollar’s gains against other currencies, mainly weighed on the rupee’s sentiment even discounting the surge in the local bourses.
