The 30-share index was 125.60 points or 0.49 percent higher at 25,722.62 with all sectoral indices led by realty, infrastructure, banking and capital goods trading in the positive zone.
    
The gauge had lost 175.51 points in yesterday's trade. National Stock Exchange's Nifty too rose by 34.75 points or 0.44 percent to 7,883.60.

Dealers said building up of positions by participants ahead of key economic data - industrial production (IIP) for March and consumer price index (CPI) for April - to be released after market closing today, influenced the sentiment.

However, weakness at other Asian markets, which saw more losses following overnight sell-off in New York on weak earnings, restricted the upmove here.

While Japan's Nikkei was down 0.41 percent, Hong Kong's Hang Seng shed 0.48 per in morning trade today. China's main Shanghai Composite Index was also down by 0.61 percent.

The US Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 1.21 percent lower in yesterday's trade.
