A higher opening in the domestic equity market and a weak dollar against other currencies overseas also supported the gain in rupee, forex dealers said. The rupee had lost 48 paise to close at 61.55 against the dollar in Monday's trade after weak inflation and industrial output data amid fresh demand from importers for the US currency.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark index Sensex spurted by 142.95 points, or 0.69 percent, to 20,750.49 in morning trade on Tuesday.
