Mumbai, February 5
Extending its winning run for the fifth session, equity benchmark Sensex finished at a fresh lifetime peak on Friday after the RBI kept interest rates unchanged but continued its accommodative stance and announced fresh liquidity measures to revive growth.
The BSE benchmark briefly crossed the 51,000-level, before ending 117.34 points higher at its fresh closing record of 50,731.63.
Similarly, the NSE Nifty scaled the 15,000-mark during the day but shed some ground to close at its all-time high of 14,924.25, up 28.60 points.
SBI was the top gainer in the Sensex pack, rallying 10.69%, followed by Kotak Bank, Dr Reddy’s, UltraTech Cement, ITC and HDFC Bank. — PTI
