Mumbai: The rupee strengthened by 11 paise to 67.04 against the dollar at the interbank forex market on Wednesday ahead of the announcement of RBI's monetary policy amid fresh selling by exporters and higher opening of the domestic equity markets.

On Tuesday, the rupee had shed 4 paise to end at 67.15 against the US dollar.

The benchmark BSE Sensex recovered by 69.38 points, or 0.19 per cent, to 34,972.59 in opening trade on Wednesday.
