Surrendering some of its early gains, the Indian rupee today rose by 11 paise to 64.44 against the dollar in the late morning trade on selling of the US currency by banks and exporters amid recovery in the equity markets.

Finance Minister P Chidambaram's assurance to investors yesterday and dollar volatility helped in improving the rupee sentiment, forex dealers said.

It hovered in a range of 64.28 and 64.70 per dollar before quoting 64.44 at 1040 hours.
