Benchmarks have ended the day on a high note, driven by a rally in index heavyweights, ahead of the RBI’s monetary policy meeting’s outcome.
Benchmark indices hit record highs intraday and closed at key levels. The Sensex clocked the crucial benchmark of 30,000 intraday, while the Nifty too hit a record intraday high of 9274, before closing below that mark.
The Sensex was up 64.02 points at 29974.24, while the Nifty was up 27.30 points at 9265.15. The market breadth was healthy as well with 1,965 shares advancing against a decline of 956 shares, while 136 shares were unchanged.
Adani Ports, Reliance and Maruti Suzuki were among the top gainers on both indices, while HDFC, Coal India, Asian Paints and HCL Tech were a drag.
