Rupee fell 18 paise to close at 74.52 against the dollar on Thursday as the greenback acquired strength in overseas markets and heavy selling in domestic equities weighed on investor sentiment.

The local currency eventually settled 18 paise below its previous close at 74.52. On Wednesday, it had slumped 32 paise to close at 74.37 against the dollar.
