The Indian rupee Thursday climbed 19 paise to close at 68.92 against the US dollar.

However, foreign fund inflows and higher opening in domestic equity market restricted the fall in the local unit.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) put in Rs 476.51 crore on a net basis Thursday, provisional data showed.
