The rupee appreciated another 19 paise to 63.11 against the dollar today as local stocks made a strong recovery and exporters sold the US currency.
The rupee,which rose to a high of 62.95,gained for the second day after RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan sought to reassure investors,saying there is no fundamental reason for the currency to fall again. He also pegged the CAD at a lower level than estimated earlier.
Capital inflows continued to aid the rupees rise,although a strong dollar overseas capped the gains.
The rupee resumed higher at 63.15 a dollar from the previous close of 63.30 at the interbank foreign exchange market and improved to a high of 62.95 as local stocks rose.
