Forex dealers said strengthening of other currencies against the dollar overseas and a higher opening in the equity market also supported the rupee. The domestic unit had closed 6 paise lower at 61.91 on Monday on month-end demand for US currency from importers amid a sluggish equity market.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose 73.78 points, or 0.35 percent, to 21,216.79 in morning trade on Tuesday.
