Mumbai: The rupee on Tuesday climbed a bit to 64.17 against the dollar as the dust settled on the political landscape in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh and the BJP gets ready to form the next government in both states.

In the opening session, the domestic currency bounced 7 paise to 64.17 against the dollar. On Monday, it had lost 20 paise to 64.24.

Meanwhile, the benchmark Sensex got off to a good start, jumping 143.22 points, or 0.42 per cent, to 33,744.90 on Tuesday.
