Indian rupee gains against UAE dirham
At the Indian interbank market, the rupee opened strong at 74.30 against the dollar.
The Indian rupee appreciated six paise to 74.29 against the US dollar (20.24 versus the UAE dirham) in early trade on Wednesday as strong buying in the Indian equities and weakness in American currency overseas boosted investor sentiment.
However, high crude prices in the international market and foreign capital outflows restricted the rupee rise, forex dealers said.
