Signs of stability in China on hopes of a government stimulus also boosted the market sentiment. However, deficient monsoon worries, sustained capital outflows and weakening rupee restricted the the Sensex gains.

The Sensex resumed higher at 25,302.98 but declined immediately below 25,000-mark for the first time in 15 months to 24,833.54 on Tuesday on Chinese worries. However, it recovered afterwards to 25,875.96 on fresh buying on hopes of reduction of interest rates by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) before concluding the week at 25,610.21, showing a gain of 408.31 points or 1.62 percent.

It had dropped by 3,034.49 points or 10.75 percent in previous four weeks. The CNX 50-share Nifty also resumed higher at 7,685.85 but dropped immediately to 13 months low to 7,539.50. However, it recovered afterwards to 7,864.85 before concluding the week at 7,789.30, showing a gain of 134.25 points or 1.75 percent.

It had tumbled by 909.55 points or 10.62 percent in previous four weeks. The meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi with industry captains, bankers and economists to discuss ways and means to support the economy amid a global slowdown gave investors a lot to chew on, which in turn boosted sentiment.
