Mumbai: Hitting a positive note for the sixth session, the rupee on Wednesday strengthened by another 24 paise to 67.63 against the dollar early on after banks and exporters continued to cut back on the US currency.

Meanwhile, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose 64.15 points,or 0.23 per cent, to 27,720.11 in early deals.
