NEW DELHI: Equity indices finished higher on Wednesday with the benchmark BSE sensex rising over 650 points led by gains in auto, bank and IT stocks.

Investors are eying Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) monetary policy decision scheduled to be released tomorrow.
“It looks like Wall Street has accepted the fact that interest rates are going to rise, and that has seeped into domestic markets,” Aishvarya Dadheech, fund manager at Ambit Asset Management told news agency Reuters.
“In India, I feel volatility is here to stay for at least two more months before we see clear skies, with key rate decisions and elections coming up,” Dadheech added.
Meanwhile, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) remained net sellers in the capital market, as they sold shares worth Rs 1,967.89 crore on Tuesday, according to stock exchange data.
