According to market observers, the upward rally of the equity markets was fuelled by positive hopes of the ruling BJP's win in the critical Gujarat Assembly Elections 2017, which will take place in two phases on December 9 and December 14.
Domestic institutional investors (DIIs) were net buyers as they bought shares worth Rs 926.68 crore on Thursday while foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) offloaded equities amounting to Rs 1,075.62 crore, provisional data showed.
Biggest gainers in the 30-share index were Bharti Airtel (2.34%), Tata Motors (1.90%), Maruti Suzuki India (1.61%) and Wipro (1.56%). In contrast, Hero MotoCorp, SBI, Reliance Industries, TCS, Asian Paint and Dr. Reddy's succumbed to profit-booking. The small-cap and mid indices rose 1 per cent and 0.89 per cent.
Overseas, the Asian markets saw the shares of most of the companies decline, since investors across the globe have an eye on the final tax legislation in the U.S., where policy uncertainty kept sentiment in check. Japan's Nikkei led the way again with an early gain of 0.9 percent, adding to Thursday's 1.45 percent bounce.
