The 30-share barometer rose by 105.64 points, or 0.54%, to 19,347.64.

Similarly, the wide-based National Stock Exchange index Nifty moved up by 24.20 points, or 0.41%, to 5,871.90.

Brokers said fresh round of buying by major players driven by a firming trend on the other Asian bourses buoyed the trading sentiment here.

Besides, covering-up of short positions in view of approaching monthly expiry on Thursday also supported the upside, they said.

Meanwhile in Asia, Hong Kong's Hang Seng index rose 0.20% and Shanghai was 0.43% higher, while Japan's Tokyo Stock market remained closed on Monday for a public holiday.
