The Sensex, which had tumbled 291 points on Thursday to 1,8861.54 on hike in taxes and FII concerns, opened firm and rose to an intra-day high of 18,988.97. It closed at 18,918.52.

The National Stock Exchange Nifty rose by 26.65 points, or 0.47% to 5,719.70.

"The markets were able to recover and gains ground once the clarity on TRC was received," said Milan Bavishi of Inventure Growth & Securities.
