Mumbai: Key Indian equity indices on Tuesday climbed to new highs as investor sentiments were uplifted by bullish global cues, combined with fresh inflows of foreign funds and buying support in metals, banking and oil and gas stocks. Market observers said the sentiments were uplifted on projection of India's healthy economic growth outlook, along with optimism over the Union Budget to be presented next week.
