Equity markets braved all odds this fiscal and rewarded investors with high returns as the benchmark Sensex surged more than 66 percent despite COVID-led disruptions and concerns over its impact on the economy.
Market analysts termed FY 2020-21 as a roller coaster ride for not only Indian markets but also for equity indices globally due to the pandemic.
In an unprecedented comeback, the 30-share BSE Sensex has jumped 19,540.01 points or 66.30 percent so far this fiscal. This extraordinary rally holds significance as markets faced volatile trends this fiscal.
The BSE benchmark hit its one-year low of 27,500.79 on April 3 last year.
