Sensex, Nifty Close At Record Highs, SBI Jumps 28%

Markets hit a record high on Wednesday

Mumbai: Indian markets ended at record closing highs on Wednesday as banks soared after the Cabinet unveiled a Rs 2.11 lakh crore recapitalisation plan, while construction firms surged after the government approved an ambitious plan to build roads nationwide.

The broader NSE Nifty ended 0.86 per cent higher at 10,295.35, while the benchmark BSE Sensex closed up 1.33 percent at 33,042.50 - having breached the 33,000 level for the first time earlier in the session.

State Bank of India soared nearly 28 percent, while Punjab National Bank, the country's second-biggest state-run lender closed up 46 percent. Both state-run lenders ended at their highest close since January 2015.
