Indian shares ended up one per cent yesterday in broad-based buying, led by a surge in pharma stocks, even as global markets remained muted, anticipating hefty interest rate hikes from a host of central banks.
The NSE Nifty 50 index rose 1.1 per cent to 17,816.25 and the S&P BSE Sensex ended up 0.98 per cent at 59,719.74.
