The rupee is marginally lower at 62.14/15 versus it Friday close of 62.12/13.

"The dollar is looking biddish as some pressure is seen on Asian currencies," says the chief dealer with a private bank.

Tips 62.05-62.30 range for the session.

The euro held steady against the dollar, retaining its gains made late last week as political unrest in Ukraine showed signs of settling down for the time being.
