Rupee declined by 7 paise to close at 75.03 against the dollar on Wednesday owing to a muted trend among domestic equities and the American dollar gaining strength in the overseas market. 

Analysts informed news agency PTI that weakness in Asian currencies and risk-off sentiments weighed on the rupee on Wednesday. 

The local currency opened the day at 75.02 against the dollar on Wednesday.

The global oil benchmark, Brent Crude Futures fell by 1.08 per cent to $85.47/barrel.

The dollar index, which gauges the greenback's strength against a basket of six currencies, was trading 0.02 per cent up at 93.97.
