After opening marginally weak at 61.90, the rupee hovered in the range of 61.87 and 62.10 in the evening trade.

Forex dealers said that hefty gains in the domestic equity market also failed to prop up the domestic unit, the dollar's gains against other currencies overseas dampened the rupee sentiment.
