The Indian rupee fell for a fourth session on early follow-on demand from oil and defence importers, say dealers.

The domestic currency was at 54.30/31 per dollar after opening at 54.18, versus its close of 54.175/185 on Monday.

Reserve Bank of India governor D. Subbarao's comments on inflation and low chances of further rate cuts are also weighing on the rupee. Most Asian currencies were trading firmer versus the dollar.
