The rupee weakened by 8 paise to 66.83 against the dollar in opening trade today.
Forex dealers said month-end demand from banks and importers weighed on the rupee but domestic equity markets opening with gains and the US dollar trading weak against some currencies in global markets, limited the fall.
Yesterday, the rupee had closed 15 paise higher at 66.75 against the US dollar on dollar selling by exporters.
