Reuters Market Eye - The rupee falls as importer demand kicks in, led by oil-related dollar buying, say dealers. The rupee is at 53.78/79, off 53.655 highs, versus 53.81/82 last close.

Demand from state-run banks also helping pair, add dealers.

RBI's easing exporter rules will also provide some support for pair.
