Indian shares rose for a fourth straight session on Monday, as HDFC Bank Ltd gained after reporting strong loan growth and hopes of a recovery in the global economy pushed stock markets across Asia higher.

The Nifty rose 0.98% to 10,711.05 by 0352 GMT, while the Sensex was up 0.82% at 36,315.69, both trading near their four-month peaks.

HDFC Bank jumped 3.4%, its biggest intraday percentage rise since mid-June, after the country’s top private-sector lender reported a loan growth of 21% as of June 30, compared to a year earlier.
