Similarly, the Nifty rallied 169.80 points to a new closing peak of 18,161.75. It also touched an intra-day record of 18,197.80.

On the other hand, Maruti Suzuki, HUL, Nestle India, Axis Bank and SBI were among the laggards.

“Auto stocks led by Tata Motors propelled the Nifty to new highs of 18,200 with good support from infra and metal stocks on the launch of the Master Plan for Infrastructure Development and Multi-Modal Connectivity,” S Ranganathan, Head of Research at LKP securities, said. Tata Group stocks hogged the limelight despite profit-taking in late afternoon trade, he added. — PTI
