The rupee stayed on upward track for the third straight session and rose 6 paise to 83.08 (23.07 against the UAE dirham) against the US dollar in early trade on Tuesday amid a weak American currency and favourable crude oil prices.

A positive cue from domestic equity markets and sustained buying by foreign institutional investors also supported the Indian currency, forex traders said.
