While, government polices like raise in import-duty on sugar also lifted the sentiment.

However, tepid results from IT major TCS played spoil- sport which generally affected the whole of IT stocks despite better than expected Q1 results of another IT bellwether Infosys, pausing the index surge during the weekend trade.

After opening the week at 31,510.62, the it hovered between milestone record high of 32,109.75 and low of 31,471.41 before closing the week at 32,020.75, showing a sharp gain of 660.12, or 2.10 per cent.

The secondline midcap and smallcap shares also made substantial gains. While Realty and Consumer Durable counters ended up with losses.

Bullion: Gold prices maintained its bearishness for the third week in a row, dropping below the key Rs 28,000-mark at the domestic bullion market on the back of subdued demand from stockists and traders, even as the metal strengthened overseas.

In worldwide trade, Gold prices marked the highest finish of the month and their first weekly rise since early June, as data on retail sales and inflation stoked concerns that the pace of economic growth may not merit lifting US interest rates again in 2017.

Gold for August delivery rose USD 10.20, or 0.8 per cent, to settle at USD 1,227.50 an ounce. That was the highest finish since June 30 and the strongest single-session climb since June 6. Prices logged a roughly 1.5 per cent weekly gain, after posting losses in each of the past five weeks, based on the most-active contracts.
