The biggest gainer among sectoral indices was Nifty Media that added 2.1 per cent, followed by Nifty FMCG, up 1.41 per cent.
Banking stocks were in the limelight on Tuesday as two private lenders came out with their quarterly earnings. IndusInd Bank slipped nearly 4 per cent while Bandhan Bank ended 1 per cent higher in Mumbai trading post their Q3 numbers.

YES Bank continued its decline, plunging further 8 per cent. All these actions led the banking indices to end lower on NSE.

BSE flagship Sensex gained 92 points to 41,952, while its NSE counterpart Nifty edged 32 points higher to 12,362.


“The market is moving ahead ignoring the sudden jump in inflation with an optimistic view on the Budget and earnings growth visible in ongoing Q3 results. The month-on-month bounce in inflation is expected to settle since a large part of the gains are one-time in nature,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.

Here is a lowdown of the movers and shakers of Tuesday’s session on Dalal Street:
