Rupee rises to 6-month high after biggest weekly gain in 20 months.

The Indian rupee rose to its highest level in nearly six months on Friday closing at 73.39 per dollar after gaining 0.6%.

Dollar inflows into the Indian stock market and gains in other Asian currencies have helped support the rupee's strength.
