Stock investors became richer by Rs 1.5 lakh crore as Sensex recorded its eighth weekly gain, the longest since 2018. Sensex has also wiped off all losses incurred in Monday’s crash. Both Sensex and Nifty rose by a per cent each, led by gains in Reliance Industries and financials.

RIL advanced 2.6 per cent, while mortgage lender HDFC added 2.2 per cent and top private lender HDFC Bank rose 1.5 per cent.

Shares of Mrs Bectors Food Specialities, which got listed on the stock exchanges today, closed at Rs 595.55, implying a gain of nearly 107 per cent.
