Domestic share markets posted modest gains on Thursday, with the market headed into final session of the first quarter, led by conglomerate Reliance Industries after billionaire Mukesh Ambani set the stage for a leadership transition at its key units.

The NSE Nifty 50 index was up 0.28 per cent at 15,843.65 and the S&P BSE Sensex advanced 0.33 per cent to 53,201.1 in early trade. The rupee stepped back from record lows hit in the previous session and was trading at 78.93 per the dollar.

Still, the Nifty and the Sensex were set for their worst quarter since the early days of the pandemic in 2020, with losses of around 9 per cent each, pulled down by concerns over aggressive rate hikes and inflation.

Reliance Industries, India's most valuable company, provided the biggest boost to the blue-chip indexes with a 1.4 per cent jump.
