On the similar lines, the wide-based National Stock Exchange index Nifty moved up 12.60 points, or 0.20 per cent, to 6,101.65.

Brokers said fresh buying by funds and retail investors amid a firm trend on other Asian bourses after US lawmakers passed a last-minute bill to reopen the government and raise the country's borrowing limit mainly enthused the trading sentiment here.

In the Asian region, the Japan's Nikkei rose by 1.20 per cent, while Hong Kong's Hang Seng by 0.50 per cent in early trade.

The US Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 1.36 per cent higher in yesterday's trade.
