BENGALURU: Indian shares closed at record highs on Thursday and ended the holiday-shortened week with a more than 2% gain, powered by a rally in banking and technology stocks.

The NSE Nifty 50 index ended up 0.97% at 18,338.55, and the benchmark S&P BSE Sensex closed 0.94% higher at 61,305.95. Indian markets will be closed on Friday.

Both the indexes have risen for six straight sessions, aided by the central bank's assurance on liquidity, easing inflation and an emergency nod for a COVID-19 vaccine for kids.

Nifty's IT index closed up 1.3%, led by a 7.5% rise in Mindtree after it clocked higher profits.
