Dollar keeps gains versus rupee; up 5.6 pct in Sept qtr

Reuters Market Eye - The USD/INR is keeping gains, though off highs on selling by foreign banks. The pair is at 62.78/80 versus Friday's close of 62.51/52, after touching an intraday high of 63.03.

Custodial flows-related selling by foreign banks and IT-related flows are keeping the pair in check.

Local stocks extend losses, down 1.2 percent. June-quarter current account deficit likely to be higher than $18 billion with data due at 5 p.m.
