Corporate India provided a much needed boost to investors this week and buying interest at Indian equities markets resurfaced in the wake of a good set of earnings reports, pushing a key index to a 13-month high.

Other Asian markets also provided a prop to their Indian peers, with some key indices touching new highs.


The 30-share sensitive index ( Sensex) of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) rose 291.35 points or 1.89 percent over previous Friday’s close and ended trade at 15,670.31 points.

This was its highest closing figure since June 17, 2008.
