Benchmark indices snapped a seven-day losing streak on March 3 after various central banks hinted policy initiatives to counter the economic slowdown in their respective countries.
Sensex rose 480 points to end at 38,623.70 while Nifty jumped 171 points to close at 11,303.30.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said it is "monitoring global and domestic developments closely and continuously".
"The fall got arrested after RBI said that it is closely monitoring global as well as the domestic situation and is ready to take necessary action to ensure the orderly functioning of financial markets. Global markets also rallied on hopes of stimulus from policymakers to lessen the impact of coronavirus on their economies," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services.
