The rupee weakened by 10 paise to 67.84 against the US dollar in early trade today at the Interbank Foreign Exchange on month-end dollar demand from importers amid capital outflows.

The domestic currency yesterday closed at 67.74 per dollar with gains of 8 paise on some dollar selling as the dollar weakned against the Japanese yen.

Forex dealers said month-end dollar demand from importers and the dollar’s firmness against other currencies overseas mainly weighed on the rupee.
