MUMBAI (Reuters) – The BSE Sensex and Nifty closed at their highest level in six weeks on Monday led by blue-chips such as Larsen and Toubro(LART.NS), which gained after the company signed an agreement with France’s Areva(AREVA.PA) for nuclear power projects, while firm cues across the region also helped.
The benchmark BSE Sensex closed 0.57 percent higher at 29,044.44 points, while the broader Nifty gained 0.61 percent to 8,834 points. Both indexes closed at their highest level since March 3.
Indian markets will be closed for a public holiday on Tuesday.
