Bdullish sentiment ruled Indian equities markets for the second day Tuesday with a benchmark index closing 188 points higher. Interest rate sensitive realty, auto and bank stocks rallied.
The markets were buoyed by hopes of some reforms during the monsoon session of parliament beginning Wednesday. Finance Minister P. Chidambaram Monday said the government will attempt to cut fiscal deficit and make changes to maintain the investment attractiveness of the country. There were also positive global cues after reports of a surge in US hiring.
