Axis Bank, SBI, IndusInd Bank, Bharti Airtel, PowerGrid and NTPC were also among top supporters. Wipro, Infosys, Tech Mahindra and Bajaj Finserv, Titan, UltraTech Cement were the top laggards.

"Market corrected quite sharply in last 4 – 5 sessions on the back of some global uncertainty. Now if there is no further aberration on the global front, 17000 – 16800 is likely to act as a key support for Nifty ahead of the budget. Since the volatility is likely to be on the higher side, traders are advised to stay light but can certainly look for stock specific buying opportunities," said Sameet Chavan (Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One.

Meanwhile, the domestic currency rupee on Tuesday depreciated by 18 paise to close at a nearly one-month low of 74.78 against the US dollar due to month-end dollar demand from oil importers, forex outflows and a stronger dollar in overseas markets.
