Meanwhile, foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) sold shares worth Rs 308.13 crore on a net basis, while domestic institutional investors (DIIs) sold equities to the tune of Rs 28.97 crore yesterday, provisional data showed.

EMini futures for the S&P 500 sprang 0.6 percent higher in early trade, while Japan's Nikkei added 0.3 percent. Shanghai Composite Index, however, fell 0.25 percent.
