The BSE Sensex climbed 143 points, or 0.24 percent to trade at 59,745. The NSE Nifty also rose 67 points, or 0.38 percent, to trade at 17,813.

Japan’s NIKKEI-225 ended almost flat while China’s Shanghai Composite index fell 0.2 percent. European markets were trading flat in intra-day trade.

Oil prices edged up, heading for their biggest weekly gains since mid-December, fuelled by supply worries amid escalating unrest in Kazakhstan and outages in Libya. Brent crude was trading around 82 dollars and 70 cents per barrel.
