Mumbai: The rupee surged by 16 paise to Rs 44.88 per dollar at the Interbank Foreign Exchange in early trade on Thursday, boosted by dollar weakness against other Asian currencies and a higher opening in the stock market.
The rupee had gained 5 paise to close at Rs 45.04/05 in the previous session on sustained dollar-selling by exporters and banks.
Forex dealers said dollar weakness against other Asian currencies and the euro, in addition to a higher opening in the stock market, supported the rupee gains.
Meanwhile, the Bombay Stock Exchange benchmark Sensex rose by 81.71 points, or 0.40%, to 20,337.74 in opening trade on Thursday.
