Dealers said a higher opening in the domestic equity market amid hopes of pick-up in foreign capital inflows and a weakening dollar against other currencies overseas added to the rupee's gains.

On Friday, the rupee had risen 20 paise to settle at 1-1/2 week high of 67.32 on persistent dollar selling amid firm equities.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rallied 201.10 points, or 0.74  percent, to 27,346.01 in morning trade today.
