Forex dealers said weakness in the dollar against other currencies overseas supported the rupee.

Further, a higher opening in the domestic equity market gave the uptrend some momentum, they added.

On Wednesday, the domestic unit rebounded from its 2-1/2 month low with an impressive 42-paise gain to close at 67.33 - its sharpest single-day jump in over two months.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose 187.44 points, or 0.72 percent, to 26,068.61, in morning session today.
