The rupee made a tepid start today by recovering a mere 3 paise to 64.05 against the dollar. Banks and exporters got into fresh selling of the US currency, which lost ground overseas too. What kept the rupee gains on a leash was a muted opening in domestic equities. Yesterday, the rupee had closed lower by 3 paise at 64.08 on fresh spell of dollar demand. Meanwhile, the benchmark Sensex fell 57.74 points, or 0.18 per cent, at 30,524.86 in early session today.
