Along with decline in global currencies against the dollar and persistent trade tensions, a wider current account deficit of India also weighed on the rupee, analyst said.

India's current account deficit in April-June period stood at 2.4 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP), against 1.9 per cent of GDP in the January-March quarter of 2017-18, according to data released by the Reserve Bank of India on Friday.
