The recent measures by the government, including the reduction in the corporate tax rate, the abolition of enhanced tax surcharge and updated norms of FDI and CSR spending, are seen as long-term positives by most foreign brokerages.

While the market is riding the wave of positivity, analysts say, there is a risk of consolidation as well.

The rupee ended flat at 70.94 against dollar despite steller stocks rally. The local currency settled at against major currencies and lower crude prices. At the interbank foreign exchange, the domestic unit opened weak and shuttled between a high of 70.87 and a low of 71.03 during the day.
