The Indian rupee recovered by 21 paise to 61.28 against the US currency in morning trade today on fresh selling of US dollars by banks and exporters in view of good foreign capital inflows into equity market.

The rupee resumed higher at 61.37 per dollar as against the last closing level of 61.49 at the Interbank Foreign Exchange (Forex) Market.

It firmed up further to 61.27 before quoting at 61.28 per dollar at 1000 hours.
