Sensex, Nifty Clock Best Two-Day Rally In Nearly Two Months

The S&P BSE Sensex rose 1.8 percent or 629 points to 35,779 and the NSE Nifty 50 Index climbed 1.8 percent or 188 points to 10,738.
Veteran bureaucrat Shaktikanta Das took over as the 25th Governor of the Reserve Bank of India for a period of three years today.
