At the close, the benchmark 30-share index, BSE Sensex added 212.61 or 0.72% at 29,788.35 with 19 components posting rise.

However, gains were capped due to caution over the rising tensions in the Middle East and political uncertainty in Europe.

The BSE benchmark Sensex recovered 213 points on Tuesday as fresh buying by investors led to widespread gains ahead of the earnings season. IT major Infosys rose 1.48 per cent.

The company is expected to release their earning results on Thursday.

The Nifty ended 0.61 percent higher at 9,237. Banks continue to look forward to NPA resolution measures shortly, and the strength was visible today.
