Forex dealers said besides sustained demand for the dollar in view of the approaching month-end, weakness in the euro against the American currency overseas amid growing concerns of a Greece debt default and a possible euro zone exit weighed.

Furthermore, a lower opening in domestic equities kept up pressure on the rupee, they said. The rupee had lost 2 paise to close at 63.64 in a range-bound trade on month-end demand for the greenback from importers despite its weakness overseas.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex plunged 535.87 points, or 1.92 percent, to 27,275.97 in morning trade today.
