Indian rupee ended 32 paise higher at 74.04 per dollar, amid volatile trade seen in the domestic equity market on the April F&O expiry day.

It opened higher by 14 paise, a strongest level since April 8, at 74.22 per dollar against previous close of 74.36 and traded in the range of 73.96-74.23, report agencies.

At close, the Sensex was up 32.10 points or 0.06 per cent at 49,765.94, and the Nifty was up 30.40 points or 0.20 per cent at 14,894.90.

The dollar was on the defensive near nine-week lows on Thursday as a decidedly dovish outlook from the U.S. Federal Reserve gave a green light for the global reflation trade.
