A higher opening in the domestic equity market with the Sensex climbing to new high, and yen's gain against the dollar overseas also supported the gain in the rupee, forex dealers said.
The rupee had closed three paise higher at 60.04 against the dollar on Friday on persistent selling of US currency by banks and exporters in view of sustained foreign capital inflows into equity markets.
Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex spurted by 338.67 points or 1.47 percent to hit a new record high of 23, 332, 90 in the morning trade on Monday.
