A higher opening of the domestic equity market also supported the rupee but the dollar's rise against other currencies overseas capped the gains, dealers said.
On Thursday, the Indian rupee ended eight paise higher at 60.84 against the greenback following late dollar selling by exporters and a strong rally in local shares. In previous three sessions, the rupee gained 29 paise.
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose 73.39 points, or 0.27 percent, to 27,185.60 in morning trade.
