The S&P BSE Sensex on Tuesday settled the day 121 points higher, while the broader Nifty50 ended above its key 8,100-mark.
The headline indices rallied as the good progress of monsoon rains lifted consumer goods makers such as Hindustan Unilever that depend on the rural economy, though trading volumes were thin due to continued concerns about the Brexit fallout.
