The previous week's close was Rs202.35.

Experts said that the local currency is expected to remain on the back foot in the this week in view of the high dollar demand for import payments ahead of fiscal year-end.

The local currency was volatile, having swung between 200.06 to a new record low of 202.83 per dollar in last week. 

Experts termed widening current account deficit and fast-depleting foreign exchange reserves are factors behind the US dollar rise and pressure on the local currency.
