The benchmark Sensex on Wednesday closed above the 40,000-mark as hopes of favourable reform measures by the government kept the mood buoyant.

Advancing for the fourth straight session, the Sensex closed at 40,052, up 220 points, or 0.6 per cent. 

The blue-chip company index took 98 sessions to reclaim the 40,000-mark, which it had first reached in early June. 

The Nifty gained 57 points, or 0.5 per cent, to close at 11,844. It is 2 per cent away
