BENGALURU: Financial and energy stocks led Indian shares to new all-time highs on Monday as key wins for the ruling party in state elections lifted the domestic market, already boosted by strong macroeconomic data and easing global interest rate expectations.

The NSE Nifty 50 index rose 2.07% to 20,686.80 points, notching a record high for second session in a row.

The S&P BSE Sensex climbed 2.05% to 68,865.12, a record close. Both the benchmarks logged their best session in 14 months and settled in the over-bought zone.

India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) secured key victories in three of the four state assembly elections, results showed over the weekend.

“The party in Indian equity markets will go on,” said Gaurav Dua, senior vice president and head of capital market strategy at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas.

“The strong macroeconomic data, favourable political outcome from state assembly elections and improving global environment has moved sentiment to risk-on from risk-off,” Dua added.
