Sensex rises; domestic oriented blue-chips gain

Sensex and Nifty provisionally gained 0.38 per cent to close at record high

Mumbai: The BSE Sensex rose on Friday to a record closing high as foreign investors continued to pile into domestically oriented blue-chips such as Asian Paints Ltd amid a slide in crude oil prices and ongoing reforms. Wholesale inflation prices easing to its lowest level in five years also helped sentiment.

Asian Paints provisionally rose 4.4 per cent, while Oil and Natural Gas Corp ended 1.9 per cent higher. The Sensex and the broader Nifty provisionally gained 0.38 per cent each to record closing highs.
