The rupee on Wednesday opened nearly 5 paise lower at 70.99 against the dollar on account some buying in American currency by banks and importers.

Pound came under pressure after parliament rejected Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s attempt to fast-track a Brexit law through parliament. Today’s economic calendar is muted and that could keep the dollar confined in a narrow range.
