Equity benchmark indices closed at new record highs following a rally in index heavyweights ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, and Infosys. In addition, renewed foreign fund inflows amid a positive trend in global equities boosted investor confidence. In a range-bound session, Sensex and Nifty settled at their new closing all-time high levels amid intense demand for realty, consumer durable, and utility stocks.

The BSE Sensex climbed 308.37 points or 0.40 per cent to settle at a new closing high of 77,301.14. The NSE Nifty50 jumped 92.30 points or 0.39 per cent to hit a record closing high of 23,557.90 for the fourth straight session.

"The Indian market touched record highs again and is gradually expanding the gains achieved following the national election. It is responding positively to the upcoming budget, which is anticipated to strike a balance between growth and populism,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

“Similarly, it is also taking cues from positive global market trends, with the US moving steadily towards the presidential election in November. Market volatility has decreased over the month, which is contributing to a short-term trend," he added.
