Benchmark indices closed at fresh record closing highs in trade, led by gains in select index heavyweights, namely L&T, TCS and HDFC. Further, a positive global market sentiment also lent support to the indices.

BSE Sensex ended the day at 56,125, up 176 points or 0.31 per cent. It is for the first time that the index has settled above the 56,000 mark. Meanwhile, NSE Nifty after hitting a new record peak in intra-day session closed 68 points or 0.41 per cent higher at 16,705. It touched a new peak of 16,722.05 in trade earlier.

The broader markets, meanwhile, outperformed, rising for the fourth straight session. The BSE Midcap index added 1.04 per cent and BSE Smallcap rose 0.93 per cent.

The sectoral space was a sea of green as all indices gained on the NSE. Nifty Metal followed by Nifty Pharma were the top gainers, up over 1 per cent each while Nifty Auto gained the least among all indices.
