Forex dealers said a weakening dollar against some currencies overseas and early gains in domestic equity markets also supported the rupee.
The rupee had lost 12 paise to close at a new 6-week low of 64.16 per dollar yesterday on persistent demand for the US currency from banks and importers amid a massive plunge in equities.
The benchmark BSE Sensex rose by 100.08 points, or 0.36 percent, to 27,661.46 in morning trade.
