Mumbai, India (BBN)-Indian rupee recovered by 17 paisa to 68.01 against the US dollar in early trade Monday on increased selling of the American currency by exporters.

On Friday’s session, the local unit had ended lower by 5 paisa to close at an over one-week low of 68.18 as the dollar gathered strength ahead of the US Presidential inauguration.
