Besides, increased dollar selling by exporters supported the rupee but a lower opening in the domestic equity market restricted the gains, forex dealers said.

The rupee had gained 10 paise to close at 60.11 against the dollar in Wednesday's trade on fag-end selling of US currency by banks and exporters.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark Sensex fell by 21.92 points or 0.09 percent, to 22,486.50 in morning trade on Wednesday.
