Foreign fund inflows, along with domestic political developments, lifted the Indian equity indices to new record highs on Thursday with the benchmark S&P BSE Sensex crossing the 38,000 points mark. Similarly, the the wider Nifty50 of the NSE made a fresh intra-day record high of 11,495.20 points.
Even the broader market indices like the BSE MidCap and SmallCap made gains. They rose 0.59 per cent and 0.29 per cent respectively. Sector-wise, PSU banks, realty and metal stocks led the northward trajectory of the two key indices.
