A higher opening in the domestic equity market and a weak dollar against euro overseas also supported the gain in the rupee, forex dealers said.
The rupee had closed 5 paise lower at 60.65 against the dollar in yesterday's trade on sudden demand for US currency from importers, mainly oil refiners.
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex recovered by 45.03 points, or 0.20 percent, to 22,676.64 in morning trade on Tuesday.
