Forex dealers said that gains in other Asian currencies against US dollar in the overseas market and a higher opening in the domestic equity market also supported the rupee.
The domestic currency had lost 10 paise to close at 59.03 against the dollar in Thursday's trade amid capital outflows linked to fall in equities.
Meanwhile, the 30-share BSE Sensex recovered by 82.67 points, or 0.34 percent, to 24,316.82 in the morning trade on Friday.
