Mumbai: Positive global cues, coupled with short covering and value buying, lifted the Indian equity markets on Tuesday.

Both the key indices provisionally closed the day's trade in the green, with healthy buying witnessed in automobile, metal and banking stocks.

The wider 51-scrip Nifty of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) edged up by 73.20 points or 0.92 per cent to 8,002.30 points.

The barometer 30-scrip sensitive index (Sensex) of the BSE, which opened at 25,928.16 points, provisionally closed at 25,960.78 points (at 3.30 p.m.) -- up 195.64 points or 0.76 per cent from the previous close at 25,765.14 points.

The Sensex touched a high of 26,039.70 points and a low of 25,765.51 points during the intra-day trade.
