The Indian rupee opened 6 paise lower against the dollar on Friday, as the American currency strengthened against other major currencies.
The domestic unit was on Friday morning trading at Rs 45.30 a dollar, 6 paise lower from the Thursday's close at the Interbank Foreign Exchange (Forex) market. It had closed 11 paise lower at Rs 45.24/25 a dollar.
Dollar's gains against major currencies overseas and lower opening on the stock market weighed on the Indian currency's sentiment, said the dealers.
Meanwhile, the Bombay Stock Exchange Sensex fell 90.53 points at 19,092.29 in the opening trade.
