Indian shares closed higher for the second consecutive day on December 8 as the Reserve Bank of India left key rates unchanged at record lows and stuck to an accommodative to support growth.

At close, the Sensex was up 1,016.03 points, or 1.76 percent, at 58,649.68, and the Nifty was up 293.10 points, or 1.71 percent, at 17,469.80.

The Indian indices started gap up on positive global cues and continued the upward momentum after the Reserve Bank of India’s monetary policy committee (MPC) retained the key lending repo rate at 4 percent and maintained its stance as "accommodative".

This is the ninth consecutive policy meeting where the rate-setting panel has left rates unchanged. The reverse repo rate stays at 3.35 percent and the MSF rate at 4.25 percent.
