Indian benchmark equity indices, The NSE Nifty and the BSE Sensex, extended their previous day's rally in early trade on Friday but failed to sustain the high. The Sensex is down over 200 points from the day's high, while the Nifty 50 is down 70 points from opening highs, at the time of publishing.

The optimism on Dalal Street is driven by global markets cues and fresh foreign fund inflows. Buying in IT counters also helped the equity markets maintain their winning momentum.

The 30-share BSE Sensex jumped 358.91 points to 65,917.80 in early trade. The NSE Nifty went up by 106.65 points to 19,520.40.

From the Sensex pack, HCL Technologies, Infosys, Tech Mahindra, State Bank of India, UltraTech Cement, Tata Steel, Tata Consultancy Services, ICICI Bank and Kotak Mahindra Bank were among the biggest gainers.

Power Grid, Mahindra & Mahindra, NTPC and Reliance Industries were among the laggards.

In Asian markets, Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai and Hong Kong were trading in the green.
