Forex dealers said dollar's weakness against other currencies overseas after weaker-than-expected US retail sales data and higher opening in the domestic equity market also supported the rupee.

The rupee had lost 32 paise, logging its biggest daily drop in over two weeks, to close at 62.42 on Thursday against US currency in line with weakness in domestic stocks and sustained demand of the American currency from oil importers.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose 76.80 points, or 0.38 percent, to 20,270.15 in morning trade on Friday.
