Positive global cues, along with healthy buying in auto, capital good and healthcare stocks, pushed the key Indian equity indices to provisionally close on a higher note on Monday.

At 3.30 p.m., the wider Nifty50 of (NSE) rose by 98.10 points, or 0.97 per cent to provisionally close at 10,211.80 points.

The barometer 30-scrip Sensitive (Sensex) of the BSE, which opened at 33,030.87 points, closed at 33,255.36 points -- up 286.68 points, or 0.87 per cent, from its previous session's close.

The Sensex touched a high of 33,289.34 points and a low of 32,997.88 during the intra-day trade.
