Mumbai, India (BBN) – The Indian rupee weakened to 64.63 as the dollar pulled away from five-month lows, with comments from US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and higher debt yields giving the bruised greenback some breathing space.
The domestic unit opened strong by 3 paise at 64.49 at the Interbank Foreign Exchange market today, reports PTI.
It hovered in a range of 64.63 and 64.47 before quoting at 64.59, down 7 paise at 4:45pm local time.
Yesterday, the rupee had lost 11 paise to close at 64.52 on fresh bouts of dollar demand from importers amid continued geo-political headwinds.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE index ended 94.56 points or 0.32 per cent lower at 29,319.10.
