Indian shares tracked global equities higher with the benchmark indexes hitting record highs at the open as soft US retail sales data reinforced expectations of an early rate cut by the Federal Reserve. The NSE Nifty 50 was up 0.31% at 23,629.85, while the S&P BSE Sensex added 0.31% to 77,543.22. Twelve of the 13 major sectors logged gains. Forty-six of Nifty 50 companies advanced.

The data led to a small boost in rate cut expectations for September to 61.1% from 56.7%.
