Continuing the recent trend of setting new lifetime highs every few days, the Bombay Stock Exchange's (BSE) Sensex touched 72,720.96, while another index Nifty hit a record high of 21,928.25 points.

Infosys was up by over 7 per cent. This was even after the company's lower-than-expected net profit in the December quarter due to sluggish demand from clients.

Similarly, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) recorded a jump of about 4 per cent. Another tech company and a constituent of the Sensex index, HCLTech's shares also reported an increase of over 3.7 per cent.

Notably, it has not been even a month since Sensex touched the 71,000 mark for the first time on 15 December. Just 12 days later, the 30-share index of BSE touched the 72,000 mark.
