India's BSE index ends above 31,000, sets record

May 26 (Reuters) - The benchmark BSE index rallied on Friday to end above 31,000 for the first time, as higher derivatives rollover led to strong follow-up buying in index heavyweights such as Reliance Industries and ITC Ltd .

The BSE index closed up 0.9 percent at 31,028.21, after hitting a high of 31,074.07.

The NSE index rose 0.9 percent to end at 9,595.10, after touching a record high of 9,604.90.

For the week, the NSE index gained 1.77 percent while the BSE index rose 1.85 percent.
