The 30-share index, which had lost 42.24 points in the previous session on Friday, recovered 52.89 points, or 0.20 percent, at 25,891.03, with capital goods, technology, realty, IT and banking sectors supporting the upside.

Similarly, the NSE Nifty index edged higher by 11.70 points, or 0.14 percent, to 7,911.

Brokers said selective buying by funds and retailers after better-than-expected quarterly earnings by RIL announced post trading hours on Friday, mainly influenced the trading behaviour.

RIL shares climbed Rs 6.15, or 0.59 percent, to Rs 1,044.90 in morning trade after the company reported a 16 percent jump in its fourth quarter net profit at Rs 7,398 crore on higher refining and petrochemical margins.
However, a weak trend in other Asian bourses restricted the rise, the brokers added.

Japan's Nikkei fell 0.76 percent while Hong Kong's Hang Seng shed 0.55 percent in morning trade today. The Shanghai Composite Index fell 1.91 percent.

The US Dow Jones Industrial Average had ended 0.12 percent higher in Friday's trade.
