MUMBAI: The benchmark BSE Sensex gained 140 points in early trade today mostly driven by a value  buying in blue-chip stocks coupled with mixed Asians cues.

Besides, covering-up of short positions by speculators also helped the market's mood.

The 30-share index recovered by 139.77 points or 0.55 per cent to 25,175.82 points with realty, FMCG, metal IT and consumer durable sector stocks trading back in positive zone.

The gauge has lost 1,133.36 points in the previous six consecutive sessions on persistent withdrawal of funds by foreign funds increasingly worried about a possible delay in the key tax reform GST bill.

Also, the NSE Nifty was trading higher by 39 points or 0.51 per cent at 7,651.50.
