Sentiment took a turn for the better after Asian and European stocks rose across the board following a strong close on Wall Street overnight as investors covered up losses following last week's deadly Paris terror attacks.
Marked by volatility, the 30-share Sensex after shuttling between 25,948.20 and 25,732.79, finally settled 104.37 points, or 0.41 percent, higher at 25,864.47. The gauge had gained 149.57 points in the previous session.
The 50-share NSE Nifty closed at 7,837.55, up 30.95 points, or 0.40 per cent. Intra-day, it hovered between 7,860.45 and 7,793.
Gains in Vedanta Ltd, Tata Steel, Hindalco, HDFC Ltd, Sun Pharma, Tata Motors, Hindustan Unilever, ONGC, Cipla, M&M, NTPC and TCS too supported the upside.
