Rupee up by 22 paise to 61.61 Vs dollar in late morning deals
Mumbai: The rupee gained 22 paise to 61.61 per dollar in late morning trade today on selling of the US currency by banks and exporters amid hopes of more foreign capital inflows into equity market.

The rupee resumed higher at 61.54 per dollar as against the last close of 61.83 at the Interbank Foreign Exchange (Forex) Market.

It hovered in a range of 61.54 and 61.73 before quoting at 61.61 per dollar at 1040 hours.

Banks and exporters preferred to reduce their dollar position on expectation of more foreign inflows into equity in view of recovery in the stock market.

Meanwhile, the Indian benchmark BSE-30 share index, Sensex, rose by 56.77 points or 0.28 percent to 20,604.30 at 1050 hours.

In New York, the dollar jumped against the yen yesterday as Senate leaders agreed on a deal to reopen the government and raise the US debt ceiling, hours away from the timeline when the Treasury Department had said the US will hit its debt limit.

The oil prices eased in Asian trade as investors booked profits from a rally inspired by an 11th-hour deal in the United States to raise the country's debt ceiling.
