Among the sectoral indices, Auto, IT, Metal, Realty, Energy, and Infra are major gainers, and Pharma and Healthcare are major losers.

Sameet Chavan, Head of Research, Technical and Derivative - Angel One, said, "The Indian equity market showed a positive start, drawing strength from robust global sentiments and favourable undertone. The benchmark index opened at record highs but experienced some correction due to a lack of sustained buying." "However, the bulls made a modest recovery and the tug of war continued throughout the session. Amidst the volatile session, the Nifty50 index concluded the day on a subdued note above the 24,100 zone," he added. --IANS avs/dpb
