Selling of the American currency by exporters and banks supported the rupee, but the dollar's firmness against euro and other currencies overseas capped the gains, dealers said.

Besides, a higher opening in domestic equity market helped the rupee, they added. The rupee depreciated 20 paise to close at 63.84 in yesterday's trade due to the looming debt default crisis in Greece amid month-end demand for the greenback from importers.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose 117.80 points,or 0.42 percent, to trade at 27,762.95 in morning trade.
