Mumbai: Positive global cues pushed the key indices of the Indian equity market higher during the early morning trade session on Monday.

According to market observers, positive Asian markets, along with healthy buying in automobiles, banks, metals and capital goods stocks led to the rise.

At 9.40 a.m., the barometer 30-scrip Sensitive Index (Sensex) of the BSE traded at 34,269.24 points -- up 127.09 points, or 0.37 per cent, from its previous close of 34,142.15 points.
