Sensex above 25k mark, recovers by 206 pts

The benchmark BSE Sensex regained the 25,000-mark by recovering over 206 points in early trade today mostly driven by a value-buying in blue-chip stocks and recovery in the rupee amid firm Asian cues.
The broader NSE Nifty too reclaimed the 7,600-mark.
Besides, covering-up of short positions by speculators also supported the recovery.
The 30-share index surged by 206.65 points or 0.83 per cent to 25,058.48 points with all the sectoral indices led by oil&gas, power, healthcare and realty, trading back in positive zone, rising by up to 1.35 per cent.
