The rupee resumed lower at 63.15 per dollar as against the yesterday's closing level of 63.10 at the Interbank Foreign Exchange (Forex) Market on initial demand for the US currency from banks and importers in view of strong dollar overseas.

However, it recovered afterwards to 62.98 on fresh selling of dollars by banks before quoting at 63.02 per dollar at 10:45am.

It moved in a range of 62.98-63.18 per dollar during the morning deals.

Meanwhile, the Indian benchmark BSE-30 share index Sensex firmed up by 47.19 points or 0.23% in the late morning trade.
