The rupee firmed up by 19 paise to 67.79 against the dollar on Friday, after increased selling of the US currency by exporters and banks.

The dollar, slipping from an 11-month peak against other currencies overseas as investors took profits also helped the rupee.

Further, fresh foreign capital inflows took the local currency higher but a lower opening of the domestic equity markets capped the rise, dealers said.
