MUMBAI (Reuters) - The rupee weakened past the key 61 per dollar mark on Wednesday to hit a one-month low, tracking losses in regional currencies and hurt by good demand for the greenback from oil importers.

The partially convertible rupee was trading at 61.01/02 per dollar by 9:23 a.m., after hitting as much as 61.03, its lowest since March 21.

The rupee closed at 60.76/77 on Tuesday.
