The rupee ended 19 paise higher at 61.42 against the previous close of 61.61 on the back of dollar sales by banks and exporters.

According to dealers, bunched up dollar inflows have provided support to the domestic unit following a five-day weekend, but losses in the domestic equity market prevented further gains. The market was closed from Thursday to Monday on account of public holidays.

In intra-day trade, the domestic unit rose to a more than a one-week high of 61.30 and touched a low of 61.48.
