Indian indices ended higher on Tuesday, following a rally in Asian peers, mainly boosted by banking and financials. Gains in metals, pharma and heavyweight RIL also lifted the sentiment. A lesser-than-expected rise in June retail inflation also helped put stimulus pullback worries at ease.
The Sensex ended 397 points higher at 52,770 while the Nifty rose 120 points to settle at 15,812.
Back home, ICICI Bank, Grasim, HDFC, Axis Bank and SBI Life were the top gainers while Adani Ports, HCL Tech, Dr Reddy's, Tata Consumer and Tech Mahindra led the losses.
Broader markets were mixed with the midcap index up 0.2 percent and smallcap index jumping over a percent.
