Forex dealers said weakness in the American currency against others overseas and a higher opening in the domestic equity market supported the rupee.
The rupee had ended marginally higher at 64.81 against the USD by gaining one paisa on Friday due to fag-end selling pressure on the greenback from banks and exporters.
Persistent foreign capital inflows also boosted sentiment.
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex was trading higher by 120.27 points, or 0.44 percent, at 27,334.87 in morning trade.
