 Rupee gains in early trade; rises above 60

The rupee was trading at 59.85 against the dollar, gaining 76 paise in trade.

According to a Reuters report regulators toughened rules for derivatives trading in the currency market in a bid to arrest the steep decline of the rupee.

Dealers also expect some dollar inflows into the forex market following a stake by Unilever Brothers in its Indian subsidiary.
