  • After gaining 263.08 points in the previous session, the Sensex advanced 67.13 points, or +0.32 per cent, to end at 21,276.86 today, a fresh six-week high. The 50-share NSE index Nifty crossed key 6,300 level by adding 30.70 poins, or +0.49 per cent, to end at 6,328.65 today on sustained buying driven by positive global cues.
