Indian equity markets closed with huge gains on Wednesday, riding on the government victory in Tuesday's trust vote and a fall in international oil prices.

The 30-share benchmark index of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), the Sensex, which opened at 14,568.22 points, touched a high of 14,979.90 before closing at 14,942.28. It went up by 838.08 points or 5.94 per cent compared to its closing figure on Tuesday.

The S&P CNX Nifty index of the National Stock Exchange, which opened at 4,246.70 points, closed at 4,476.80. It went up by 236.07 points or 5.58 per cent from its previous close.
