The rupee gained 6 paise to 73.52 against the US dollar on Friday, reported news agency Press Trust of India. Besides fresh selling of the US dollar by exporters, the greenback's weakness against some currencies overseas supported the rupee, dealers were quoted as saying in the PTI report.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) will announce its fourth bi-monthly policy statement later in the day.
