Mumbai: Continuing its winning streak forthe third straight session, the benchmark BSE Sensex rose over 48 points and the NSE Nifty regained the 8,100-mark in early trade today on sustained buying in bluechip stocks amid a mixed trend in Asian markets.

Brokers said reforms in construction and real estate sectors, announced by the government yesterday, also influenced trading sentiments. Besides, a mixed trend in other Asian markets boosted the sentiment, they added.
