Forex dealers said that besides the sustained selling, dollar's weakness against other currencies overseas, coupled with a higher opening in the domestic equity market, propped up the rupee at the Interbank Foreign Exchange.

The local currency had surged 35 paise to 63.65 against the dollar in Thursday's trade.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex recovered by 173.51 points, or 0.63 percent, to 27,379.57 in morning trade.
