Increased selling of the dollar by banks and exporters amid sustained foreign capital inflows supported the rupee, dealers said.

Besides, a higher opening in the domestic equity market also helped the rupee but dollar's gain against other currencies overseas limited the rise, they added.

The rupee rose 30 paise, its biggest single-day gain in a week, to close at over 11-month peak of 58.47 against the dollar on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose 121.05 points, or 0.50 percent, to trade at 24,495.45 in morning trade.
