Forex dealers said increased demand for the greenback from importers after China lowered the yuan value continued to put pressure on the rupee.

Furthermore, a lower opening of the domestic equity market played spoilsport, they said.
The rupee had plunged 32 paise to close at nearly a 2-month low of 64.19 per dollar in yesterday's trade on persistent demand for the American currency from banks and importers on the back of a higher greenback overseas.
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex was down 120.70 points, or 0.43 percent, at 27,745.39 in morning trade today.
