Mumbai: The rupee depreciated by 5 paise to 65.06 against the dollar on Monday after renewed demand for the US currency from importers.

The dollar made headway against the euro after Angela Merkel's attempts to form a new government for Europe's biggest economy collapsed, plunging Germany into a crisis.

A subdued start at domestic stock markets cast its shadow, traders said. On Friday, the rupee had bounced back in style to end at a one-week high of 65.01 after Moody's upgraded India's sovereign credit rating.
