Nifty surges past 8,000 to mark record high

Tags: Stock Market
The Nifty surged past the psychologically important 8,000 level for the first time to mark its latest record high as blue-chips such as Larsen & Toubro gained after better than expected quarterly economic growth data.

The after-glow of Narendra Modi's election victory nearly four months ago helped India's lumbering economy register its fastest growth in two-and-a-half years for the quarter ending in June, according to data on Friday.

The 50-share broader index marked a record high of 8,011.15. Markets were closed on Friday for a holiday.

L&T gained 1.7 percent, while ICICI Bank Ltd rose 1.2 percent.
