Benchmark indices closed higher for the ninth straight session on Tuesday as investor turned their focus to corporate earnings from geopolitical tension. Among sectoral indices, the Nifty Realty index was over 1 percent higher led by a rise in the shares of Godrej Properties and Indiabulls Real Estate. That apart, investor sentiments were positive during the day following the forecast of a normal monsoon this year by the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

Asia stocks rose modestly on Tuesday following data showing China's economy grew a little faster than expected in the first quarter.
