Key Indian equity indices on Friday closed on a flat-to-positive note as profit booking along with caution ahead of upcoming macro-economic data points eroded investors' risk-taking appetite.
According to market observers, caution over ahead of the RBI's monetary policy review and a long weekend also forced investors to vacate some of their positions.
The wider 51-scrip Nifty of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) provisionally closed at 9,788.60 points -- up 19.65 points or 0.20 per cent.
The 30-scrip Sensitive Index of the BSE, which opened at 31,367.25 points, provisionally closed at 31,283.72 points -- up 1.24 points (at 3.30 p.m.), from its previous close at 31,282.48 points.
