At 9:05 a.m. (0335 GMT), the partially convertible rupee was at 53.15/18, after falling 1.53 percent on Monday to 52.84/85.  During trade on Monday it had hit 52.87 after the industrial output index for October plunged 5.1 percent from the same month a year earlier, far worse than expected. The BSE Sensex also fell 0.3% early on Tuesday as investors turned cautious after a slump in industrial output raised concerns about corporate earnings and foreign fund outflows.
