The partially convertible rupee trading at 60.50/51 per dollar at 9:06 a.m., its strongest level since August 12 and higher than its Monday's close of 60.77/78.

Overseas investors bought Indian shares worth 14.65 billion rupees and 10.56 billion rupees worth of index futures on Monday, when shares hit a record high, provisional exchange data showed.
