Benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty started on a positive note on Thursday amid weak Asian markets hit by US-China trade tension. Investors are cautious ahead of the expiry of May futures and options (F&O) contracts, traders said.

Top gainers in the Sensex pack include Bharti Airtel, Asian Paints, RIL, NTPC, Bajaj Auto, Coal India, TCS, PowerGrid, Tata Motors, and ITC, rising up to 2 percent. On the other hand, Sun Pharma, Tata Steel, HDFC, M&M, Vedanta, ONGC, Maruti, and ICICI Bank were among the losers in the index, shedding up to 1.29 percent.
The Indian rupee rose 0.18 per cent to 69.705 against the dollar.
